I refused to believe I was bi-polar until a new psych suggested I try Lamictal and I am so much better than I have ever been before. Thank God I found this doctor. Lamictal saved me from suicide; I was getting very close!

I have been on Lamictal for 5 weeks and have had 0 seizures! I have had no side effects except maybe irritability and anxiety but these are things I struggled with anyway before. They just maybe feel a little worse. I was a little headachey and tired in the beginning but feel better now. In general, I really love this medication, I feel like my normal self again!

I have been on Lamictal going on 4 weeks, I have noticed a positive difference. I am happy more than normal. I am really hoping and praying that this works because I am tired of switching meds and gaining more and more weight... I do have headaches everyday though, but so far its worth it. :)
