    depression. I was in my first year of university and living alone in a new city. I was initially put onto Cipralex 25mg and when that did not work I was put onto Lamictin in conjunction with the Cipralex. I started on 75mg then built up to 100mg. 6 months later I was diagnosed...

    Lamictal For Bipolar While Pregnant/Nursing

    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...
