Lamictal and lack of motivation
Currently on my 4th week of the med, soon to approach 100 mg. My complaint is that I have absolutely no desire to do anything. More often than not, I wind up sleeping an average of 11 hours per night, and it is an incredible fight just to get myself out of bed, in the shower, and ready for work. I don't want to bother talking to people, everything feels pointless, as though nothing I do or say matters in the scheme of things anyway.
It's somehow different from being depressed and unmotivated. Hard to describe, but I cannot feel the feeling of depression anymore. I have not cried once since starting the med, I suppose this would be taken as a good sign, but it's incredibly frustrating. The only thing I feel is a blunting of my emotions. I just can't feel anymore.
I'm also on 20 mg. of Lexapro, I'll have to research its side effects too, but from what I've read, Lamictal is known to cause especially the lack of motivation.
