Lamictal and started Geodon for weight purposes

how does it work? Are there many side effects? Did help with your BP depression? I'd really appreciate some answers. Thanks.

Re: Lamictal and started Geodon for weight purposes

I was on Lamectial for over a year and really packed on the pounds. I switched to Geodon and I've lost a lot of the weight. I haven't noticed a real change in my BP. I think they both kinda work the same.

I'm also on Gedon and Lamictal and have been for the last three years. I haven't experienced any side effects.

Turns out the slight weight gain I've noticed is from the Seroquel...so my Pdoc is weaning me off of that while is upping the Lamictal.
