I am slowly weaning off Lamictal, the only medication I have been on for a long time. Many reasons for going off it, but I am trying to go the natural route. I have been doing TONS of research, and I have come across some alarming information that makes me glad I made the decision I have. I never really thought bipolar was a correct diagnosis anyway. It was more of an environmental issue and I think the drugs have been keeping me down. ANYWAY.
I came across this list of vitamins that Lamictal depletes or interferes with while in your system. (i found a few different sites, and these are the ones that over lapped on them) I find this interesting since I can tell by how I feel if I have remembered to take my vitamins (I take a high-potency multivitamin) I thought I'd share this with you so that maybe by supplementing to make up for what you are losing might help you stay healthier, mentally and physically---of course check with your doctor before taking ANYTHING
Obviously do your own research and talk to your doctor about all these things. Here's to your health! I hope someone else finds this as interesting as I do.
