Talk to your doctor(s) about trying Lamictal (Lamotrigine). Or check with the great 'World Wide Web' and research it.

I am a rapid cycler with Borderline Personality Disorder. I was recently put on this med. and it seems to be helping me. Good Luck


> Greetings all! Have a question for you, but first some history... After five years of therapy and 10 years of self medicating with AD's (originally Zoloft and now Celexa)for SAD, I think we have come upon a diagnosis of cyclothymia.
> Usually this time of year I am in my seasonal upswing and don't take any AD, but this year, I have symptoms outside of my normal cycle. My AD medication seems to be inducing what seems to be manic periods of irrational irritability, but if I stay off I am cycling into a low period of sleeping all the time and low functioning. This is wreaking havoc on my job since I have a heavy workload I have to balance and obviously my personal life as well.
> Here is the catch-I am afraid of adding a new med to my current cocktail because I take Propulsid (approved in pharm study since they pulled it of market) because its the only med that treats my low esophageal pressure(I feel like a walking pharmacy some days and find all meds annoying although necessary.) This means life threatening results if I take tricyclics or don't watch what I am taking very carefully.
> My question(s) are this-of the mood regulators-are any of them trycyclic? or does anyone have any insight why the Celexa isn't regulating like it normally does? Thanks-
