Red face Going to dr. this morning..........depression worse.

I have tried every single almost AD out their, and thinking about talking to my dr. about adding either Topamax or Lamictal @ a very low dose or starter pack to see if this will help the deep depression THAT is not going away.

I have read the Topamax CAN CAUSE DEPRESS but is used for depression? What?

Lamictal worried about the rash..........but like I stated.............I want just a tiny does if she will alloy it.......

Which one would you consider for deep depression? And yes, worried about the weight gain, too.

Just don't want to look stupid when I do see her this morning........already feeling shot down.

Please respond soon...........Please. I have to go soon.

Thank you all for being my back bone..........

Re: Going to dr. this morning..........depression worse.

Hi girlfriend.

She upped my dosage of Lexapro and put me on a low dose of Topromax to see if this helps with the depression. I sure hope so..........She said it is usually not used for that BUT HAS been prescribed it for that b4! So hopefully in a few days we shell see.

What do you think? I hope it works.........I am going to be positive......all I can do...........does not do any good to be negative.........right?

How are you doing? And thank you for asking about my well beings.......hugs....

Re: Going to dr. this morning..........depression worse.

I'm glad you got her to do something at least. I would've went with the Lamictal, as Topomax for depression is using it way off label.

Let me know how you do and if you see a difference. How much lexapro are you on now?

Re: Going to dr. this morning..........depression worse.

She never even brought up the Lamicatal? Wonder why? Do you think Topamax will help?

You never know, it might. I don't want to get you down.....I've been on Topomax for a diff condition for 6 years and it's never affected any of my BiPolar/Depression symptoms.
