lamictal making me a little low?
I've noticed that once lamictal was therapeutic in me, I've been a little down, sorta negative. I used to wake up fairly happy or hopeful about the day. Then on lithium, I woke up OK, always slept well. Now I'm switching to lamictal, and have been on 100mg lamictal + 600 mg lithium. But I don't wake up happy anymore... I wake up feeling negative about something. Fortunately, the thoughts/feelings dissipate.
Ny pdoc is puzzled by this, as lam. usually focuses on depression, and my syptoms smell a little depressed. Still, he has upped me to 150 mg lam. and is weaning me off the lithium.
Any input anyone?
