Discussions that mention xanax

Bipolar Disorder board


Hi Guys,
I've been on Lamictal for almost six months. For me it was a blessing. I suffered undiagnosed for so many years that when I finally found Lamictal it was like a miracle. It doesn't sedate me like some of the others I tried (Geodon). BUT! (you know there's always a but! LOL) I'm hoping that Jules1 is reading this because I think (know) I'm going to need additional drugs to compensate for anxious and sometimes depressed feelings. Jules1 mentioned that his/her coctail is Lamictal, Paxil, Xanax. I'm wondering if this combo might work for me. If we don't hear from Jules1 I'll start a new thread.
Take care,
T. :)

haha yes, my current medication cocktail consists of 80mg Paxil, Lamictal, and Xanax. Xanax is to help me sleep (and I don't grind my teeth as badly) and also for when I'm having a really anxious or restless day. The Paxil is for OCD and Depression, although it works well for general anxiety, social anxiety, and OCD, its not working so much for the Depression. Thats what I'm hoping the Lamictal will do. I really think I have drug-resistant depression :(

I hope this mix works for me too!
