I have been on Abilify, Risperdal and Seroquel to name a few. I was on 10 meds at one time and still a mess if not worse. Now I take Lanictal, Klonopin and Rozerem, only three and my quality of life has improved drastically. My mood swings are lessened greatly and most weeks pretty nonivasive to my life activity. I think the Lamictal is primairly repsonsible. I am diagnosed with BiPolar Disorder, Anxiety Disorder and PTSD.Published: October 12, 2007 ::

I have been on Lamictal for about 6 months, and have noticed a big difference in my moods, etc. Comment from: Me, 45-54 Female on Treatment for 1-2 years (Patient)

I was diagnosed Bipolar- II almost two years ago.Lamictal and Zoloft were the first drugs that were prescribed for me. I never felt right on the Zoloft or any SSRI or SNRI for that matter. I got up to the 300mg doses of lamictal and felt it had stopped being as effective as it was in the beginning. This took 1/2 year to poop out. I then started looking for alternatives as my Doc. at the time just wanted me to slowly increase lamictal, yet I felt I needed another med. Well, I went back to my first Doc. that diagnosed me, and tried different meds., but after reading a book called Bi-polar II, from the library I found that the gold standard, for Bi-polar is Lithium Carbonate ER. So I suggested this to my doc. and I have been taking it along with 150mg Lamictal for less than a week. I tell you, I have felt some calmness, and peace with the Lithium add-on already and look forward to more. She only started me at 300mg twice a day. We will do bloodwork soon to see if I need an increase for the theraputic level. I just wanted to pass this along to others, as lithium was the first med. available to treat bipolar and sometimes docs. go with the newer meds. that the drug companies produce. It may have side effects, check them out with your doc. So far though I have been excercising 30min. a day and cutting out gluten and sugars, eating more good carbs. and protein, no weight gain yet. I tell you the side effects may be so minimal for me that I don't feel anything but benefit for Lithium so far. I'll keep you posted. I am in therapy every two weeks,working part-time, and have a great marriage with two great teenage girls. It isn't easy to make it trough each day, sometimes I force myself to sit back and be thankful for what I do have and have managed to keep up with considering my mental health and lack of sleep, (getting better). Thank you for all of your messages on Web MD, I have read many.Published: March 01, 2009 ::

I've used everthing under the sun for my Bipolar disorder and anger issues. This by far is the best I've ever taken. I'm very happy now but my hyperactivity has increased though its a good thing in my opinion.Published: October 05, 2007 ::

This medication was a miricle drug for me. For the first time in my life, I got to experience 'normal'. My seizures are in the temporal lobe, so I got to even feel normal emotions. My sleep patterns were normal for the first time in my life. I had a normal schedule. I played with my kids outside. I got angry without hate, I felt happiness without overconsuming joy. My mind did not race anymore. I could think and process one thought at a time. I could play, work, sleep, and enjoy all the benefits of life I could never enjoy before. I didn't even know it was possible to have that kind of of a life until Lamictal. I thought I had found the answer to all my issues until one day, almost three months into my treatment, something terrible happened without warning. I took my evening dose and exactly two hours later, my fever spiked to over 103, I developed a raised rash on my forehead, I began vomiting, and then I passed out out of nowhere. I thought I had a virus. I took my morning dose and the rash spread thru my scalp and began to peel off taking my hair with it. I had never been so sick in my entire life. I had to immediately stop the medicine due to Stephens Johnsons Syndrome. Due to the sudden stop, I began going thru withdraw and the seizures became intense. I don't know what will replace the Lamictal, but at least I know now what normal feel like. I will recogonize it when I find it again. Nothing else has come close yet. I'm still looking.Published: December 06, 2007 ::

My best advice to anyone with depression and/or bi-polar disorder is to try any meds that are offered or are available. It took a while to find the medications that worked for me. Don't be worried about taking more than one drug either. I have been taking Lamictal for 3 1/2 YEARS. I am taking 400 mg and have been for most of that time period. I have had excellent results on this med, and have had no side effects at all, ever, nor have I had any significant weight gain. This medicine has worked wonderful for ME. It has stabilized my mood dramatically. I also take Wellbutrin 450 mg, and Seroquel 100 mg. This is the "cocktail" of meds that have worked for me. As I said, I have been on this combo of drugs for 3 1/2 years. Medicine affects everyone differently. Don't think that just because one person had serious side effects that you will also. This medicine may be just what you need. Sometimes you have to trust the doctor more than the reviewers. The doctors know what the side effects may be. They are in no way trying to hurt you! They trying to help you the only way they know how! Good luck and God bless you! There is hope, just don't give up!Published: October 10, 2009 ::

It helped me a great deal with my bipolar/manic depression. I don't feel as manic, and feel more calmer.

Published: September 20, 2007 ::I am currently taking 300mg to sleep better, as well as 50mg of Zoloft to make whatever depressive episodes, or excess stress, less strong. The only downside I've noticed is that I feel fatigued during the day. Overall, I am grateful for finally finding something that works!Published: October 12, 2007 ::

Lamictal has changed my life....and unfortunately...not for the better. I started taking Lamictal in 2002...and almost 7 years later I am still suffering the effects Lamictal has left on me. As a result of taking Lamictal,I developed Stevens Johnson Syndrome...this is the "rash" the doctor's might tell you about as a side effect. SJS however is far more than that. If you get this so called "rash" from Lamictal...it gives you a reaction that litterally makes your skin peel off and blister and cause your skin to have chemical burns from the inside out. This was an extremely awful and painful experience. Lamictal sent me to the burn center for 6 weeks and gave me a ventilator, because the skin on my lungs was sloughing off as a result of the medication and I couldn't breathe on my own. I would give anything to go back and never have taken Lamictal. Maybe for some people, when you have no other option, you might have to use it as a last resort..but for me their were so many other options. You also have to watch out for swollen lymph nodes this could be a sign that you are getting an allergic reaction. The chemical burns from the Lamictal made it so there were blisters in my eyes and now I have unbearable eye pain and eye problems. My eyes do not look normal I have redness pain, dry eye syndrome,(severe,I have to use eyedrops about 10-20 times a day) photophobia,trichiasis,blepharitis,droopy,swollen eyelids, and constant eye infections because of this. I have scars and have also lost all my fingernails and toenails because I lost my nail beds as a direct result of Lamictal. I also am very sensitive to hot and cold temperature and cannot be our for long periods of time. It is such a hassle and has hindered me in life. Now,if you are thinking, this happened to just one of those unlucky people who are one out of a million, you are wrong The risk is a lot higher than you think. It is 1/100. just please be careful and ASK YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT STEVENS JOHNSON SYNDROME. God BlessPublished: April 10, 2009 ::

Nagyon drága vagy! Ha lefordítod, én felteszem mindig a megfelelő helyre. Ha egyes gyógyszerekről szól -- pl itt a lamotrigine-ről (Lamolep, Lamictal) -- akkor oda, ha betegségről, pl amit neked linkeltem, akkor oda.

Offline

Jó,köszi!Megnézem,lefordítom,aztán megbeszéljük,hogy legyen fent a Búrán!Ez inkább egy folyamatos,számomra terápiás munka lenne,mikor van időm.

Offline

Szia parrot! Ha fordítanál, az nagy segítség! Persze most már kereshetnénk olyan gyogyókról visszajelzést, amit mostanában írnak (ezt elég rég másolgattam ide).

Egyébként talán hasznos neked: askapatient.com a forrás. De van még egy jó hely: http://www.drugs.com/condition/borderline-personality-disorder.html -- itt például a profi infó mellett borderek írnak kritikát a gyógyszereikről. Gondoltam, hátha érdekel...

Offline

Sziasztok!Van még szükség fordításra?Mert akkor szívesen besegítek.

Offline

Most ezeket fordítja valaki, vagy csináljam? Mondjuk én már a tíz párhuzmaosan szedett gyógyszernél legyalogoltam az agyamról...:// Vagy a magyarítás alatt azt értsem, hogy az itt forgalomban lévő szereket kellene ismerni?

Offline

Igen, magyarítgatni kéne, ha valamelyik gyógyszer érdekel.

Én nagyon sok érdekeset találtam: pl hogy a lamotrigine élénk álmokat okoz, hogy rövid távú memóriazavart is okoz, némelyeknél hajhullást, szavak felidézésének nehézségével jár... Ez mind olyan mellékhatás, amelyekről az általam megkérdezett orvosoknak fogalma sincs.

most azt mondom, szívesen segítek, de ehhez neki is kell állni, ami a legnagyobb probléma szokott lenni. úgy tervezem, ha jobban leszek kicsit, elkezdem.

csak "magyarítás" kell?
