    Lamictal for Sleep disorders; Mood swings; Depression

    Hello everybody! Within a half an hour, the states of mind often changed from high to high and sad to death. Initially, Lamictal was added carefully here, but unfortunately the conditions did not improve even after two months. The doctor said that Lamictal will only work after a longer time. Therefore a (still) restrained rating. Update follows. I was unable to fall asleep despite 7.5 mg of zopiclone, often pondering for hours, having severe nightmares, and after sleeping for 12 to 14 hours – with many interruptions – I felt so struck that it took me 6 hours to partially recover to leave the house at all. And again and again this eternal brooding, even in the sleep breaks … For four days I have additionally prescribed Seroquel. 25 mg for two days, since then 50 mg each evening. On the first day, I had already taken it right after the doctor’s visit at 16:00 clock. (25mg) I was invited to dinner right after, but got so tired after an hour that I was glad to be back home. I could have gone downstairs right away and would probably have fallen asleep immediately. But I did not want to, because I was afraid that I would wake up at midnight – and begin to brood alone at night … The effect was around 20:00 clock something after, so I decided against 21:00, another tablet ( 25 mg). The effect was the same as previously described. At around 10:00 pm I slept, and surprisingly did not have nightmares, and woke up at 5:20 in the morning. I had a heavy head, which I got away with coffee within an hour. The feeling of dryness in the mouth then became better and better. But I’m really surprised to find that I’m much more thirsty than before. Which leads to the fact that I now drink at least 3 liters a day, which I have never done before! I also had a craving in the morning. I ate breakfast extensively, which I never did before. I’ve been feeling better since then, I woke up again at 6:00 today. I still need my two hours to be really there, but I’ve already had almost two liters of it for breakfast, breakfast, and my mood is much better, almost a little euphoric. I am very curious how it goes on. I will gladly keep you up to date. The side effects last, but are absolutely bearable – and I even like to accept them when I think of the many improvements.

    Side effects: Mouth dryness

    So at Trevilor I had quite a circulatory problem at the beginning. I could barely walk, but then disappeared after 2 weeks and my general condition has improved … but when I wanted to sell my medication .. also the Trevilor I got really severe weaning symptoms such as vomiting, headaches, circulatory problems and the depression came again. I’ll take the medicine again now.

    Side effects: Withdrawal symptoms

    Lamictal for Depression; Epilepsy

    I took Cipralex for 9 months, 20 mg daily in the morning. Everything was fine in the beginning, I tolerated it very well, my complaints were much better than before. The first side effects were: Weight gain up to 15 Kg in the 9 months, I could not cry anymore, I was so caught up in the drug that I could no longer grief. I was totally tired and exhausted, beaten off, impotent, had no desire for anything, could not get me up to anything. I had a lot of sweats, increased tremors, bad headaches and muscle aches. It was hard for me to get up, I just sat in my room. In May, I discontinued after consultation with my doctor Cipralex. Since then I have increased this Restles Leg syndrome, the so-called restless legs. This soon gets me out of my mind, I can not sleep before one or two o’clock in the morning, have very confused dreams, wake up with sweat. And since I dropped off Cipralex, I’m again very close to the water built, I was very much missing that I can just cry. I do not recommend taking Cipralex for longer than necessary, especially in combination with other psychotropic drugs. The effect can be affected. I can only say that Cipralex helped me very well at the time of the crisis, but after prolonged ingestion, my life has been seriously affected to the detriment. I wish you all that you will recover and live a good and healthy life without Cipralex and all the other psychotropic drugs.
