doing ok

Oct 25, 2010 - 0 comments

I have been on a stable dose for the last 2/52 and after going up last week due to pse I am doing ok now.  the brain fog has been great this last week and the dizziness also manageable but still there.  In fact yesterday I felt largely normal.
I feel the main side effects/symptoms I am getting are due to the lamotrigine at present:
fatigue
dizziness
muscle tension
muscle aches

I can live with this for now.  I still intend to reduce the lamotrigine to 100mg but will probably wait for another 2/52 before i start reducing it further (unless I am going ok in that time, or something else happens).

just got to do it!

I am also getting to the therapeutic dose of cipralex.

i am aware that the lamictal levels will drop by doing this reduction but I hope that will not be too bad and I can manage with the cipralex

if needed i can increase the lamictal to 150mg from 125mg I am on at present
