Anyone take lamictal? how does it make you feel?
I used to be on it but I didn’t notice any difference.
I took if for a year. Didn’t do anything for me. No side effects either.
For a mood stabilizer? Lithium is a million times better!!!
I was on lithium and lamictal at the same time and they did nothing for me. Then again I think i’m misdiagnosed. I think I’m schizophrenic not schizoaffective. I’m always confused about the diagnoses… but I had my worst psychotic break while I was on lithium and lamictal and they called it a “manic episode” or a “mixed episode” or something. Really it was just a psychotic episode. My mood really didn’t suffer when I went off meds it was just paranoia and nervous/scared feeling. I dunno.
I felt pretty flat on lithium but it was completely different and didn’t have the damn cognitive side effects that lamictal has. I feel like I’ve had a lobotomy since I started this med. I’m dumb as rocks and can’t think for ■■■■.
