> Well, I get intolerable side effects, as well as unintended consequences, such as what you've mentioned above (i.e. agitation, hypomania etc.) To me, anything that is intolerable, whether it be an unintended response, or a "side effect" renders the med intolerable for that individual. It gets a little semantic.

Yes, I guess it is all in the wording...What meds are you on now other than Lamictal? How do you like Lamictal? Are you benefiting from any other meds? I think a while ago you were considering Li. Have you tried that yet?

Drinking at least 8 glasses of water is healthy for the body. Anyone can feel lousy (low energy, tired, mild headache, etc) when they are slight dehydrated. But when you throw medications in the mix, especially drying ones, it's essential to get enough water. The body needs to be able to flush out the metabolites and waste products from the organs. Also if you are sweating, you need to drink more, so blood levels of meds don't increase and make you notice more side efffects.

Lack of water=dryness, so you might give it a shot and see if some moisture comes back. Can't hurt!
