Lamictal urination

Common Questions and Answers about Lamictal urination

lamictal

Avatar_m_tn I have been on Lamictal and Cymbalta for some time. I was taking 100mg of the Lamictal, but was recently increased to 200mg. I asked to be taken off the Cymbalta because I thought I was having a bad side effect from it....profuse sweating! But it hasn't stopped. I am active and go to the gym on a regular basis and it's just plain embarrassing having sweat pouring off my head & body. It also smells like ammonia. I am ruining a lot of my clothes and it's maddening.
Avatar_f_tn Ugh, I had and have a lot of this. Now bear in mind, I'm not a doctor. I do however have Hashimoto's thyroiditis, bipolar disorder (NOS), depression, anxiety, and GERD. I recently figured out I have Fibromyalgia too, since my mood is finally "normal" with being on Lamictal, but all the pain is still there. I'm betting your kid doesn't just have one thing, but a few different things occurring together (co morbid).
Avatar_f_tn I have had a transvaginal ultrasound, pelvic exam, blood tests, and a cystoscopy and everything was fine. I am on concerta, lamictal, pristiq, seasonique, and zyrtec d. My urologist suggested that my problems were from taking my medications; the weird thing is I have taken these medications together for a while now. my symptoms that are coming and going are a tingling feeling in my groin area, that will last for days then go away.
Avatar_m_tn I am fortunate because it has been well controlled by medications. I am currently on 450 mg of Lamictal and 500 mg of Topomax per day. Can these meds, or my prior meds (Tegretol, dilanton, mysoline, etc.) be part of the problem? Topomax is a bit of a dilemma. As you know, the risk of kidney stones is 4 times higher so I should drink more fluids but that worsens the frequent urination problem. What could be the cause of this problem and a possible solution?
Avatar_f_tn Its possible side effects include nausea, diarrhea, sedation, polyuria (increased urination), increased thirst, tremors, hypothyroidism, and weight gain, to name a few. Long-term treatment with lithium or some other mood-stabilizer is usually the standard of care in the treatment of bipolar disorder. There are other mood stabilizers, Valproic acid (Depakote) being the most common. It is not without side effects (e.g.
Avatar_f_tn Hello has anybody had frequent urination because of taking SSRI's? It seems that every SSRI I've tried makes me go to the bathroom a lot. I was wondering what you all think? Any suggestions would be appreciated. I don't have a UTI because I was tested for it. If I don't take my Lexapro I go crazy so I feel like I need it in my system.
Avatar_n_tn There are too many potential symptoms to list -- mostly would be lack of menstrual periods OR significant increase thirst & urination -- these are just examples. Labs could include prolactin, FSH, LH, estradiol, TSH, T4, T3, IGF-1 (growth hormone), cortisol and ACTH as well as blood sodium level. An endocrine consultation may be the best way to approach this if there is concern regarding pituitary problems.
606584_tn?1224853036 After 6 years on heavy meds for Bipolar, I slowly tapered off Lamictal, 400 mg., and then Risperdal, 1 mg. I began to taper my stimulant, and ran into heavy problems. My psychiatrist put me back on Risperdal, and change Lamictal to Lithium. I experienced intense ringing in my ears. I thought it must be the Lithium, so I stopped it after 1 week. I waited and waited, and the ringing still persisted. I thought it must be the Risperdal, so I stopped it.
1054665_tn?1305512055 Lithium is known to be associated with tremors and passing of large amounts of urine(Diabetes insipidus) so if the med is not suiting you u could ask for a change of med to Lamictal or trileptal both of which are anticonvulsants with excellent mood stabilizing qualities.
Avatar_f_tn For years now, my 22 year old female body has been ravaged by extreme fatigue, frequent tension headaches, very frequent urination, lower abdominal pain, general digestive discomfort, bone and joint pain and an intolerance to cold. I've seen a GI who gave up after numerous tests and diagnosed me with IBS. My new doctor's run the gamut of tests to try and help me, My thryoid function is normal (TSH 1.1-1.2) She that I had low Vitamin D, (19.
Avatar_n_tn * Do NOT bundle up someone who has the chills. * Remove excess clothing or blankets. The environment should be comfortably cool. For example, one layer of lightweight clothing, and one lightweight blanket to sleep. If the room is hot or stuffy, a fan may help. * A lukewarm bath or sponge bath may help cool someone with a fever. This is especially effective after medication is given -- otherwise the temperature might bounce right back up. * Do NOT use cold baths or alcohol rubs.
Avatar_m_tn Hello, i am 26 years old i was diagnosed with depression about 5 months ago and prescribed lamictal and cymbalta. i have been suffering from these intense symptoms for the last 2 years and dont know wether i have been correctly diagnosed. note: there was no extraordinary event that caused my depression, but i am a perfectionist so might be very stressed about everything subconciously. Symptoms are 1) Total mind blockage. brain feels like wood and plastic.
1902610_tn?1321664442 For me, I experienced tremors, my head was very foggy, I had no emotion, and was very nauseated all the time. They switched me to lamictal and that works for me. It depends on how your own unique body chemistry works with a med. Lithium can be an excellent med for those it fits with.
Avatar_m_tn Do you have any other asociated symptoms of cough, breathlesnes, weaknes, joint pains, stomach aches, burng while urination etc? Since when are you having the fever? When trying to reduce a fever: • Do NOT bundle up someone who has the chills. • Remove excess clothing or blankets. The environment should be comfortably cool. For example, one layer of lightweight clothing, and one lightweight blanket to sleep. If the room is hot or stuffy, a fan may help.
Avatar_n_tn Although I have all the symptoms of Hyperparathyroid. To the extent that I just started Lamictal for my depression. I have HTN, heart palpitations, fatigue, constipated, excessive thirst it is ridiculous, frequent urination. I usually generally just "don't feel good". My ionized calcium was tested and was in the "normal range" However it is borderline high. It was 1.32 mmol/L. Could I have the symptoms of hypercalcemia with that level?
Avatar_m_tn finally a diagnosis of epilepsy after full seizure and put on Lamictal 9. low blood sugar = 70 mg/dL 10. binge eating and drinking 11. allergies totally out of the bounds of reality!!! 11. frequent urination and Dysuria off-scale 12. all incoming stimuli perceived as pain? Fibromyalgia? 13. walking around in a cognitive cloud 14. painful odd, strained defecation 15. poor short term memory and logic skills Am I on the right med?
606584_tn?1224853036 Its not uncommon to move to Lamictal after that and there's nothing wrong with Lamictal - its probably where I will end up shortly according to my psychiatrist and it does not worry me. Sadly SNRI's can still bring on mania but they are proving safer than SSRI's in incidence of Mania and more seriously mixed episodes which are the dangerous states and SSRI's are very good at provoking them.

Avatar_f_tn Thank God the nausea finally has subsided and now I am on Lamictal. I have taken it before a year ago with no problems so I think it will be fine. This cost me $3521.54 in med bills with no insurance and over a month of my life. I so hope this nightmare is finally over and I hope no one else ever has to endure this. Everyone please beware..
Avatar_f_tn I have interstitial cystitis myself, and flares can come with bladder pain and frequent urination. Prior to my hysterectomy, I had frequent urination because a large fibroid tumor in my uterus was pressing on my bladder- with your lower abdominal pain, have you had a pelvic ultrasound?
2010625_tn?1329375656 Pain in the back of my head all the way down to the end of my spine, stiffness in my whole body upon waking and stiffness if I sit longer than 10 minutes, dizziness, nausea, weakness in my legs, numbness and tingling in my arms and legs, shakiness, tremors, painful urination (without infection), painful periods and PMS, Insomnia(I had not slept in 8 days before being admitted and I was psychotic from sleep deprivation. I only had a few hours sleep while on that psych ward.
Avatar_f_tn If you are on lithium, have you gained weight? If so, did this happen seemingly overnight or was it gradual? Do you think it's a metabolic issue or a diet issue? When I quit smoking, for example, I gained 15 pounds in two weeks without changing my diet. It was a metabolic issue and I was told that in a few years things would straighten out on their own. I started smoking again right about two years later, so I don't know what would ultimately have happened.
Avatar_f_tn These may be signs of a serious condition called tardive dyskinesia (TD), which may be permanent If you have diabetes, or risk factors for diabetes (for example, obesity, family history of diabetes), or unexpected increases in thirst, urination, or hunger, your blood sugar should be monitored.
Avatar_n_tn Congrats on the pregnancy!!!! I am glad to see that you are already taking precautionary measure, like talking to your psychiatrist and going to see your OB tomorrow. Your OB will be able to give you a better understanding of how to taper of your medicine and your OB will not judge you because you are not on prenatals like you said you had no idea you were pregnant.
Avatar_m_tn anyhow, i've been on zoloft and lamictal now for several months (zoloft since april and lamictal about 2 months). xanax at night and as needed during day. prozac helped me for many many years, BUT i had never been severely clinically depressed, as I have been since February. the psychiatrist i was seeing for past 2 months just kept upping zoloft and lamictal, then added wellbutrin. i kept getting worse or at least not better and she dismissed me, saying you're just not on enough.
Avatar_f_tn JUST BECAUSE IT HITS SOMEONE ELSE LIKE THAT DOESN'T MEAN IT WILL DO THAT TO YOU. I AM AN EPILEPTIC THAT USED TO TAKE A MASSIVE DOSE OF LAMICTAL AND TOPAMAX, 1000 MG/DAY OF EACH ONE. I HAD BRAIN SURGERY, SEIZURES STOPPED, GOT WEANED OFF THE TOPAMAX AND CUT THE LAMICTAL WAY DOWN. EVEN ON THAT HIGH DOSE OF THE TOPAMAX, I DIDN'T LOSE MY HAIR.
Avatar_n_tn Does anyone else expierence soreness, especially in the back and legs when taking the Adderall or excessive urination?? Thanks...
