I am actually new to this board. I was recently diagnosed as type 2 bipolar, mostly depression accompanied by anxiety and impulsivity. Anyways I am on 40 mgs of Prozac and have been on the starter kid of Lamictal now, going on 4 weeks- on 50 mg as of now.
My symptoms are constantly changing and I was wondering if they will go away or are the abnormal? Constant itching all over-no rash or anything. Paranoia at night. I feel like when Im laying in bed someone is going to break in or there is a fire or something and then I dont sleep half the night and when I do, I have the most horrible nightmares.
Also some blurred vision, headaches, flushing and dizziness-which is tolerable.
Even though its only been a few weeks I feel a definite shift in mood for the better.
more stable. However I am one of those worried about the affects of meds and if these side effects should subside.
My doc-who I dont really get anymore
thinks I should stop Lamictal if I dont like the side effects. But I feel as if its working.
Thanks to anyone who took the time to read this and respond.
I am really relieved to find others with the same challenges as me that I can talk to.
