Re: Major Depression/Skipping Lamictal?
I had the exact same thing happen when I skipped one Lamictal dosage. The next day, I as a basket case, crying, desperate, helpless...into a major depression. I asked my pdoc if this could be just one Lamictal, and she said Oh definitely.
So you're not alone, and it is the medication.
As for your doctor, sounds like it's time to fire him. Not getting you your Rx on time is inexcusable. I hope you find another.
Your stressors are great...but I, for myself, find that if I skip the Lamictal, I just cannot cope with anything at all.
My pdoc gives me an Rx for a month or so, and sees me every 2 weeks when I'm having a med adjustment or change, or just when I'm in rough shape. And not once have I been without meds I needed.
I hope you find a way to deal with all those stressors, and glad you got your prescription.
