Yeah, I was on 400 mg lamotrigine in the past. My psych tested blood levels and apparently I cleared through the drug rather quickly. Same with Lithium- I was at below typical levels for 1200mg.

I am wary about ECT. My family has had some experience with it actually, and done ok, but it does seem to vary. I'll go through with the consult, but I'm not signing up for it right away by any means.

No, barring this period, I actually dislike being on medication, but I'll do it if it works. My psych really isn't a poly-drug guy either. Except for some of my combos. Did do lithium and parnate some. I'm uncertain about the remeron in some ways. I have had an EKG and all that jazz, BP, so I know I am relatively ok.

Sorry that you went through forced hospitalization and ECT, I can't imagine how difficult that was. Switch ing personalities. Glad that you made it through!

Yeah, I'll tweak more and see how it goes.
