Common Questions and Answers about Lamictal and buspar


1540869 tn?1351217613 Yeah i took it for about 2 days then stopped taking it , it made me really dizzy and did not help half as much as klonopin so right now im on lamictal and klonopin so far so good, but i'm a littlescared of the side effects i've heard about lamictal but i have read a lot about it and seems to do more good then bad which is a good thing.i'll see how it goes, i hope good .
1540869 tn?1351217613 I was just on zoloft and clonazapam and i just got switched to buspar and lamictal . I'm taking it for depression and bipolar . But if i have any problems with my balance or remembering things i will get off of it immediately . It would be awesome if they could make just 1 medication that didn't have any side effects wouldn't it? I just took buspar last night and it made me a little shaky at first and a little tired, I don't know how i'll react to the lamictal but i hope nothing bad happens.
782988 tn?1242689585 If the side effects are low I might be able to feel good and tolerate it without the use of Klonopin, so help me.....

736314 tn?1276888223 Sounds like a reasonable amount of all the different medications. The Lamictal and Abilify are at standard clinical doses but effective. I believe the same with Ativan and Buspar though I only took those for a short time. The Lunesta however, is at a higher dose than needed for many people. 1 mg worked fine for me.
Avatar m tn Hello I've been taking Lamictal and buspar for about a year and had decent results from it. I still have a lot of racing thoughts, still contemplate suicide and hate my life but I started getting functional again.. especially with the help of klonipin. I recently went through a break up and just fell apart. The lamictal couldnt get me out of it. I started getting terrible diarrhea from the lamictal and I figured it was a good time to try lithium which Ive heard is stronger.
4971738 tn?1390568984 Amazing how similar this is to what I am dealing with on an average daily. I am on lamictal and buspar too, I deal with forgetting bills to pay, I even forgot an appointment for my mammogram, and yes I do try to write it down but most of the time I'm alive I am feeling overwhelmed then my job has contributed to more debilitation and I have nobody to help me, I am alone in this and I'm tired of trying.
497950 tn?1255867527 I take 150 mg of Lamictal as well as Buspar and Zoloft. I have had stomach problems since I started. The first two-three months I would get sick multiple times a week. Puking and diahreea were terrible. 6 months later I get nauseated every day but sick a lot less. I take my meds in the morning and feel nauseated throughout the day. I cannot allow myself to get too hungry or I will start throwing up stomach acid. I can feel it coming and a couple crackers will keep the vomiting away.
Avatar f tn Did anyone took Lamictal for anxiety and depression? Did it work,and how soon did it started working? Did anyone started feeling normal and had their old life back?

510814 tn?1213268575 I am now on Buspar, lamictal and Celexa- I have an old presription for Xanax but use it only when I REALLY need it because I want it to work when I do need it. Anyways do you have an opinion of the combined drugs that I am on and if I have a bad day is it ok if I took a Xanax? .5 and 1.00 mg is what I have but I break the 1.00 in half almost all the time and I have had the same bottles for many, many, many months- I do not use it a lot...
Avatar m tn For the last year or so I was taking 300mg/day Wellbutrin Xr and also 200mg lamictal. I have also taken Buspar for around a year. Around a week ago, I decided to lower my dosage to 150mg. of Lamictal. This is what my psychiatrist had suggested 8 months ago might be capping my happiness. She left town and I had an appointment made with a new guy at a new place this week. About 10 days ago, noticed before the appt my script would run out.
5764859 tn?1400885356 I was just recently on buspar for anxiety and tried it for one full month. Was prescribed to take it twice per day (15mg) and each time I took it, I was in a state of fogginess for a good 2 hours. Yes it helped with the anxiety but once it wore off, the anxiety came back so I would take clozapine which helped but that too wears off. I was just switched to Sertraline (Zoloft) and been on it for just a few days. Here's hoping to some relief without taking multiple pills per day!
Avatar m tn Lamictal 50mg at night Buspar 30, 3 times Seroquel 50 at night Prozac 20 mg morning Woke a few times last night. A bit of anxiety on waking. Still feeling as though I over trained. I am weak and unmotivated. My leg are sore. Had a few time I was out of breath for no reason.
Avatar m tn Which is the most likely to depress libido? 100 mg Seroqeul at night 200 mg Lamictal 30 mg Buspar.
Avatar n tn I'm very sensitive to noise and rage easily,since stopping Geodon. I should add that we had stopped my buspar in anticipation of starting Emsam. My emotions are on a roller coaster and I can't get a hold of my MD because it is Easter . We are supposed to go to Canada for a family trip on Sun, but I'm a wreck. Can anyone tell me if this has happened to them before and how long the withdrawl lasts. Ativan has always worked for me and 2 isn't even helping. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn I currently take Tegretol, Neurontin, Seroquel, and BuSpar. I recently stopped taking Wellbutrin SR. I know that Tegretol causes neural tube deficits and heard that Calan is sometimes used as a mood stabilizer. I do not know much about Calan other than it's a calcium channel blocker and also used for high blood pressure. I've been on Tegretol for about 10 years, even if I stop taking it will it still be in my system and effect the baby? I'm already taking folic acid 800mcg/day.
420308 tn?1203044862 5mg of Effexor ER, 200mg of Lamictal, 60 mg of Buspar, 1200 mg of Neurontin, 600mg of Seroquel and .5 mg of Xanax ER as needed. I feel better than I ever had in my life, but the only problem I have now is excessive weight gain--about 30 lbs. I am currently 5'7 and 188 lbs. I want to get my weight down to 160 lbs. As a New Year's resolution I have been working out between 30-60 minutes 5 days a week combining cardio and weight training.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know of any medications other than Geodon, Depakote and Lexapro to treat Bipolar? I have been depressed for over 3 years, and I've also tried Lithium, Lamictal, Cymbalta and Buspar. I wake up dreading the day, and I feel very anxious all day, like I don't want to stay unoccupied. My thoughts are all about how I'm never going to beat this thing; it feels almost like something alien has taken over my brain. I also can't yawn anymore. I know it sounds stupid, but I can't yawn.
2010625 tn?1329375656 Any way maybe you could tolerate a low dose of risperdal if it helps. I also take Ativan, lithium, and buspar If I could tolerate the twitches, and maybe not everyone gets them, I'd take Haldol.
Avatar m tn Then, about 2 ½ years ago I had a near-psychotic meltdown, mostly about the devil and evil spirits, and was diagnosed with OCD and prescribed Anafranil and Zyprexa, which helped with the irrational thinking and obsessive thoughts a little. Between now and then, I have been diagnosed with OCD, Social anxiety disorder, GAD, major depressive disorder, ADHD, and most recently, aspergers/high functioning autism.
Avatar f tn I was put on Cymbalta-30 mgs-okay until dr upped to 60 mgs-(on top of 400 mgs lamictal & 4 mgs ativa) I broke out in terrible rash all over face &neck--finally ended up in hospital in 5/08-they took me off cymbalta, ativan & lamictal for 2 days;added depakote &klonopin; released from hospital;after 3 days my feet swelled up; had to come off depakote 2nd time this had happened); have been having trouble ever since dr put me on lithium in 3/07 while being treated with diuretic for
Avatar f tn For what it's worth, I am a firm believer in CBT and REBT (which now I have applied more easily into my life) and I take Buspar. My mood stabilizer (for bipolar) Lamictal probably fills in some areas, thus I don't take a large dosage of Buspar. I hope you find relief and what you are looking for. Have you tried other pharma meds?
1768199 tn?1323621536 I now take a Valium 1/2 hour before dosing with Riba and incivek and it works fine. I don't know if it is for everyone though. It can be addictive and I'm not working so I can go back to sleep if it makes me to tired, but I couldn't take the physical anxiety. It makes you feel like you want to jump out of you skin. More physical then mental. I feel much better now.
Avatar n tn I have also been looked at for Lupus and have seen a sleep specialist and have not helped. What else can I try to help with these mood swings and behavior? The only things I have not taken are MAOI’s and Lithium, would these be any more affective?
Avatar f tn For the last 2 years she's been pushing Tegretol on me. That's in addition to Abilify, Buspar, Lexapro, and Tofranil. The last time I was hospitalized for psychiatric reasons the psychiatrist there in the hospital put me on 600mg of Tegretol nightly. I was a zombie for the 6 months that I gave it a full shot. While under the influence of Tegretol I can't think clearly, and I sleep upwards of 16 hours a day.
Avatar f tn However, for at least a year now, I've been sleeping 12 to 14 hours on days when I don't have to be somewhere and can take a nap if I sleep 10 hours or less (sometimes more). I'm at my wit's end and have had lab tests for my thyroid, iron, B12 and Vitamin D and all came out normal (except the B12 was elevated). I also take thyroid medication and vitamin/mineral supplements daily.
1540869 tn?1351217613 So i've been taking lamictal for about 3 days now , and it seems to be working ok. So far so good, the buspar did not work out as well for me. Made me really shaky and felt like i was falling or dropping (weird feeling) i know , but i'm wondering if maybe it's not the buspar and maybe could it be because i was on zoloft and klonopin for 7 months? And just switched to 2 different meds? or could it just be the buspar? I don't know .... I have different feelings about it. I'm not sure.
Avatar n tn I went through detox, and got off the xanax, and the docs put on a bunch of anti-depressents and after a while I convinced my docs to put on ambien, and then lunesta and finally klonopin. Okay, I am seeing the problem start all over again and I want to nip it at the bud. Any suggestions? Can I wean myself off this stuff by myself?
Avatar n tn Also, has your doctor said anything about buspar??? Now I take Paxil and buspar (2x a day) and Klonopin when needed (which is hardly never). I weaned off the depakote after one year.
