I Take Lamictal

    Started Lamictal. Had to quit smoking herb.

    Sucks but I prefer to be stable than smoking my evening joint with a side of netflix... Although I'm itching for it now.

    I was diagnosed with bipolar right before this pregnancy (good timing, right?). The only medication I'd tried before that was Symbyax, which didn't seem to help at all and may have made things worse. Its hard to tell because I was in a crazy spiral at the time, and my anxiety and...

    I've been on lamictal

    since about September. Although it has made me "stable" I also have felt a lot of side effects. When I first began taking it I was lethargic, lazy and always had headaches. I got up to 200mg. I recently started tapering off it because I felt like the side effects, including...
