Question Lamictal Withdrawal

It has been six days now since I ran out of Lamictal. I stupidly let this happen after being told by my case worker that there is nothing she can do until Tuesday when I see a doctor. I could have (should have) gone to the E.R. I planned to every day... It just hasn't happened. I'm too exhausted. and sad. and hurting. At this point I feel that going to the E.R. would be a mistake, as an E.R. doctor might not know if I should or shouldn't start at my regular doseage. I was told by the last E.R. doctor that I would be fine without it for two weeks, which is obviously completely untrue.

Between emotional breakdowns this week, I've been light headed, nauseated, and I've gotten several migraines. Is this normal? What risks will I run in to if I wait one more day?

Also, being the idiot that I am, I stopped taking my 10 mg of Celexa the same day. I can't remember if I consciencely made that decision or not. I'm completely losing it here. Help.

Re: Lamictal Withdrawal

Never heard of it. I have experienced severe SNRI withdrawal many times
