I have been on Lamictal for 2 wks now. it is the week before my period and I am seeing that I am getting a little down. I look at my son and for a moment, I felt the way that I should feel about him- the way I felt and cared for my daughter, then it passed. And I cried. Why cant I feel the way I am supposed to? anyone have depression related to their cycle. I was doing great til the past couple days. i was wanting to jump out of bed -do my exercise and putt around before work. now i don't even want to get up. any advice?

Re: pms? pdoc mentioned that pms is sometimes more pronounced with bipolar and i know it is with me....i'm on risperdal which can also be taken as needed so he suggested i take an extra pill on those days i feel more down/out of it, etc.....seems to help....maybe your pdoc can suggest something you can augment your treatment with for that week....maybe just some mega amts of omega3???? or a temp dietary change??? just a thought....having bipolar is tough enough, adding in the hormonal changes makes things even worse, almost intolerable to me especially now since i'm dealing with this menopause stuff now....
good luck finding some relief
