Re: lamictal and anxiety
thank you everyone who responded. gatsby, your post was particularly interesting. i have been doing some searching about lamictal and anxiety and it looks like some people have had it prescribed for GAD. i looked up information on GAD and i kind of wonder if i have that because i have a few of the required symptoms for a diagnosis...of course, these are also symptoms shared with bp.
i'll ask my dr. at my next appointment and follow up here, in case anyone else is wondering this same thing. i'm not about to look a gift horse in the mouth, though...whether i am diagnosed with something extra or not, or whether or not lamictal is known to treat or not treat any type of anxiety, i'm just glad the anxiety is gone. it is an anxiety i have known all my life and it has suddenly disappeared! i feel as if a big block wall that was holding me back has been broken down!
