Common Questions and Answers about Lamictal and klonopin together

lamictal

ativan and Klonopin. Thanks. I am seeing my pdoc on Nov. 11th and need to talk (again, so frustrating) about my meds. Prior to last week, I was feeling pretty good. I am also in pain management ( arthritis in back) and prescribed 10 mg. oxycodone ( 1 in am and 1 in pm). Please help as I need to know....thanks.
now i go this friday..im taking the lamictal with me..if im just hypo manic and depressed this should help me..when i took lithiem it did great for me..so im the only one who knows what im going threw a pdoc these days are much, much difft then in the past 20 yrs or more..physiologist are the diagnoses..a pdoc is more into knowing the meds..i have this strong feeling hes going to put me on another benzo like klonpin witch i took them for 12 yrs prior to the xanax...
she went to rehab for cocaine and was put on klonopin.....it was very informative...she states the klonopin ended her career and did not know what she was doing...she was just worried about staying away from cocaine...sad...she is ok now tho.....
Yes my mistake if that's what you were speaking about. I was prescribed Neurontin at the same time as Lamictal and I believe I was told by my psychopharmocologist that one enhances the effect of the other. Obviously that would be something to speak to your psychiatrist about but they would be the ones to prescribe it regardless.
Hello Dr Gould, I would appreciate you input on Klonopin and effects on depression. I have a friend who is 11 weeks post-partum and has been having increase depression and anxiety. She has been using Klonopin over the past two months and has slowly been using it more. It seems to help here get through the difficult anxiety/panic times, but the depressive symptoms seem to be getting worse. I have been doing some online searching for her.
kLONOPIN IS 100% BETTER THAN VISTERIL. oJNE OF MY DOCTORS WEENED ME OF KLONOPIN, AND ON TO VISTERIL, AND i FEEL NOTHING FROM VISTERIL, i NOW HAVE PANIC ATTACKS AGAIN, MOOD SWINGS AND EXTREME ANXIETY AGAIN. i AM PISSED, LOST MY JOB, CANT FUNCTION, AND MADE A BIG MISTAKE BY GOING TO A PSYCH AS RECOMMENDED BY MY PRIMARY DOCTOR.
I have tried ambien and sonata and just don't want to be on another med since I already take klonopin and remeron and a beta blocker. I guess to use on occasion would be fine but I just want to take the least amount of meds I can and use diet and exercise as my main way of controlling any sleep problems or anxiety I have. So Barfer, when you went to 30 mgs you said you started having panic attacks? I kinda think that is some of my problems, especially after a hard cardio.
I freaked out and was ready to kill the entire staff there, I was in both alcohol and Klonopin withdrawal together. I don't know if she did that on purpose to teach me a lesson or made a mistake, but after I released my self and shook down for one more week at home and almost died of seizures I finally admitted myself again and she raised the dosage back up to 12 MG of Klonopin. Then she slowly tapered it to 6 MG over six weeks in-patient.
I was told that I shouldn't take them at the same time so on any given day I'll either take Klonopin or Xanax and sometimes will take two pills of the Xanax in one day. I am also taking effexor 300mg daily; risperidone 1mg daily; prazosin 5mg daily and lamictal 400mg daily for depression. I have been on some combination of depression meds for 10 years also.
But trust me your not its my 12th day on klonopin with no xanax and i feel AMAZING!!!!..Dont take the klonopin and atavan together just stop the atavan and replace it with the klonopin just like ryan said...He was there for me the whole time i was weening it was hard im not gonna lie but worth every bit of hell.like ryan said if you dont do something now you will be in a lifetime of med hell...There will be a point were you feel like its not working and want to give up...god knows i did..
25mg of Klonopin (it was my first time!), along with my usual dose of 5mg of Lexapro and 100mg of Lamictal. For peace of mind I want to make sure it is okay to take these meds together with the Klonopin. Any info would be much appreciated.
im on lexapro, lamictal, geodon and klonopin...do you think this should be enough to beat the chance of depression??....again, i was told by doctors i was not taking enough to even experience withdrawal symptoms....thx...
I had so many things running through my head that I couldn't put a sentence together. I can go on and on and on about all this. My symptoms are so jumbled, it's hard to explain. I really appreciate the impute you have given. People around me don't really know what's going on because they are not Bipolar. It's great that I can bounce things off you guys without judging.
I don't completely know the mechanism of it but when she is upset or manic it is worse and when she was actively psychotic it was awful. We thought it was her lamictal and we started to wean her off of it but it didn't change the sensation. She felt like things with texture were moving when this was going on.
I was put on for anxiety/mood disorder. Possibly bipolar 2. I also am on celexa, lamictal, deplin and klonopin ( 1 mg tid). Because of the grogginess, we decided to cut the serquel to 75 mg. That was 3 nights ago. Now I am waking up with severe anxiety. I have battled this for a year but it seemed like it was getting better. I am so sick of meds.....but my question is could that cause the anxiety to come back as I hear that is a low dose.
I am currently weaning off of Lamictal and I am at 50mg right now and will start 25mg tomorrow for 2 weeks. I also take iron and doxycycline which is nothing new. I am a wreck and this wole week has been bad but many sx started before this past week. So it's been bad for a time. There is my med hx this week. The hypo stuff I'll just have to deal with. I can't deal with no sleep and not being able to sleep. My mind just won't shut off. I tried walking, no help. I tried the Klonipin, no help.
I got off of Celexa and feel terrible. I am still on the Lamictal and recently upped it but it has not helped with my "feelings". I still feel terrible (as I have been crying for hour and half straight right now). My doctor gave me a prescription for Wellbutrin. I am nervous about using it. Scared it wont work like Celexa did and I'm afraid of gaining more weight. I can't take that risk. I am 5'2 and now way 188 pounds. At the beginning of 2004 I weighed 136.
I tried Lamictal but it made me literally stupid and gave me horrible acne, then I tried Depakote but it made me like the living dead I was miserable and tired and I gained 20lbs and started losing my hair (i didnt appreciate that), currently I'm on trileptal which is great because my hair came back and my depakote weight went away but i dont think it is getting rid of my seizures so its basically useless, so now I am slowly adding topamax to my regime!
2 years ago my pain was so bad i went to a neuro for the first time, wasn't working for 6 months due to debilitating pain, he wouldnt help me said the same thing you did but gave me enough klonopin, neutrontin and a bunch of other stuff that turned me into a zombie with hundreds of side effects and was flat out dangerous to my body long term.
So I dug up some more info that I wanna share ... in case you are dying of curiousity. Or need more info like I do. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http***mb.rxlist.com/rxboard/ultram.pl?noframes;read=3179 not just for breakfast anymore Posted By: mkny Date: Friday, 21 October 2005, at 3:53 a.m.
Before I was diagnosed with BP Disorder, I was on Celexa and Neurontin consistently, and we tried Buspar and Klonopin.. The Buspar made me suicidal and the Klonopin calmed me down, but made the depressive episodes worse. We just recently upped the Lamictal by 25mgs (from 200mgs- 225mgs) and it seems to help the depressive episodes, but doesn't do much for the agitated mania.It has always helped the rapid cycling; it's been the only medication that has..
My pdoc and i have been working together to come up with drugs that will help. Right now, I am on 200 mg lamictal, 150 seraquel at nigh, 1 mg klonopin tid ane 60 mg of celexa. He has also suggested deplin and omega 3 fish oil with flax seed as apparently they are seeing results with that. My question is that he has suggested a consultation with another specialist, not sure what he called him, whom he has referred patients to for consultations. Sometimes this new doc uses ect.
How do you get on with life when you have acquired a severe disability? Well I'll take a piece of advice someone told me "sometimes you have to put life on hold". I always made sure to ignore that. Don't put "life on hold". Every moment you do that you aren't living or enjoying life. There are some things I can't do now such as go to movies.
I am diagnosed with BPD, Panic disorder and Bipolar II disorder and am currently taking Lamictal, Prozac and Lyrica for sleep. I am also taking percocet for the horrible panic episodes that I have because that seems to work as well for me. I think I know why this works for some people. In an article that I read a couple of years ago,(unfortunatly I lost it) they said that the brain produces it's own morphine.
in my experience klonopin is a great long term approach, and it is not any harder to get off the longer you use it, it does not usually build tolerance but there are periods of time when your anxiety is more intense and you may need a temporary increase in dose.
Wellbutrin, Lamictal ( great med for me stops racing thoughts, worries) Klonopin ,,,1 pm Klonopin,,,bedtime Lamictal, Klopopin, and celexra. Is there any chance do you think that your depressed plus anxiety. I am sorry about your mother..there is a suicide help for those who lost family members..dont know exact name..its first word is suicide look under forums you will find it maybe it can help you to talk w others who are in your shoes.
It does not have an antipsychotic effect. I'm on Klonopin for the spams of tardive dyskinisia but its clinically similar to Valium and there are many medications (benzodizepenes) in that class. They are prescribed as controlled substances because they can be potentially addictive and have a potential for abuse but if used correctly are safe and effective. Anyone taking an antipsychotic should get a yearly blood work up, especially for diabetes and monitor constantly for weight gain.
And the advanced tardive dyskinesia I had started when I was on a full dose of Lamictal and I asked him and he said it was a "possibility". He doesn't know because I was on an antipsychotic then and antipsychotics definitely cause tardive. And he's looking over one documented case of Lamictal enduced movement disorders I showed him from the web.
