> Are you also taking lithium?

Not at the moment. I have taken it with Lamictal a couple times for about a yr each. It's a good combo but it really flattened/fatigued me once I started getting to 900mg+ (barely the min .06 level). My bp mania is usually psychotic when it gets unmanageable and the episodes (at least in my view) have usually coincided w heavy stress periods or recreational drug use (quit everything in 2010 and have only had 1 bad episode since when I tried to come off meds + add a weight loss drug).

I'd prob still be on lithium (was on it for year after my 2015 episode/hospitalization) but it was causing my blood pressure to skyrocket since I take Marplan (maoi). Other people take it w an maoi w.o. issue but after months of thinking I was just getting old/needed a better diet I got off Like and my body went from ~160/110 aveage to ~115/65. Glad I figured that out and haven't had any I'll effects in the yr or so I've been off it. Doc approved obv.
