anxiety, misdiagnosis and Lamictal

This post has 3 issues in it_

1. Anxiety disorder

2. Misdiagnosis

3. Lamictal and side effects.

I have recently been told by a new doctor that my mental illness is actually anxiety- severe anxiety, and for years I thought it was bipolar.

I have extreme irritability, insomnia, paranoia at times, panic attacks, but thought that was bipolar and symptoms of mania.

I am currently taking Lamictal and do not like it. I feel more anxious on it and have developed acne! Plus have no concentration and feel out of it at all times. I am on 250mg
for sleep I take Ambien CR and for panic attacks I take Ativan as needed.

Can anyone relate to anything I am saying here? Im very confused, but could be the lamictal!
