06:13 am - Hello
Hey I was diagnosed with bipolar type II back in November, and at the time the doctor gave me a sample pack of Lamictal and reccommended that I start on that because it´s supposedly really good for the downs of the cycle, which for me are a lot more prominent than the highs. But it took me the past few months to convince myself that I was willing to go on stronger meds, so I didn´t start taking them. I was curious to know if there is anyone on here that has tried Lamictal and when they thought of it. Is it actually good for the depressive cycle of bipolar? What were the side effects you experienced? Thanks for the info.

I started Lamictal last week and haven't experienced ANYTHING so far. Sorry that doesn't help much.

Questions

Does anyone know if there is a progression from BP II to BP I? If my meds are working should I still be experiencing extreme mood swings?

I had issues with Lamictal.. possible allergic reaction which can be fatal, possible anxiety due to possible fatal allergic reaction. Lovely. There's no way to test and see if it is really allergies, so we backed off of that one pretty quickly. Lamictal is supposed to be pretty good though.
