My hubbie is on 1500 mg lithium / 100 mg lamictal / 40 mg Adderall daily and it seems to be the right combo for him. I say "seems" because I have only seen the amazing difference in his stability for 2 weeks, but it looks as though we're finally on the right track...
Valjay, I wonder if you just need to have the Lamictal increased, 50 mg is a pretty low dose and may not be effective enough for you.
Seaturtle, I hope once the Lamictal is increased, some of the side effects go away for you. Different meds work for different people, but I would hate to see you get off of something that helps you if you could conquer the effects after a while.
2fast, very encouraging! My hubbie says he's felt better on the Lamictal than with anything else - hallelujah!
Thank u all for sharing ur experiences with me. I am very hopeful that my husband will continue to do well with this med combo. I know this illness can shift/change over time, but it's amazing to see what the right meds and self awareness can do! It's as if the BP is dormant!!
