You will probably hear negative and positive responses. Mine being one of the negative! You really cant go by what people say, cuz everyone reacts differently to these med's. Recently i have had major problems on Lamictal, i have heard that it is a MIRACLE DRUG! Just not for me. You can read my many posts on here------asking for major help! I too, am on Wellbutrin XL. I am also in the process of finding a new pdoc....and i talk alot about how frusterated i am with docs and meds! I NEED to be on something....just cant find the right one! These are all trial and error. I dont know how much you know about Lamictal, but it can take a couple months before you feel anything. You have to start out with a very low dose, then work up to higher dose. The risk factor with this drug----but is VERY RARE, is it can cause a very serious rash! If this happens it happens within the 1st few weeks, and you need to get treated for that. With all these meds there can/are side effects.....that is drusterating as well. I would try this though----it may work for you. I do know that it is a fairly new drug used to treat bipolar. Good luck to you------i hope it works. Read along the boards...there is quite a bit of info on this drug.
