Going off Lamictal. Sigh...

Posted by Cindylou on April 9, 2002, at 7:57:29

Hi all,
Just an update that I decided to go off of the Lamictal for now. I was on too low of a dose for it to do any good (75 mg), and every time I tried to increase I got severe bloating, and things actually seemed to be worse. But the main reason I'm going off of it is to try to get pregnant, eventually!

My pdoc gave me a prescription for Nortriptyline (I think that's the one ... the tricyclic.) She said it's been proven safe in pregnancy -- I'm not sure if I'll be able to tolerate it or not, but it's worth a shot.

I'm also going to try vitamins and that Omega 3 fatty acid stuff.

We'll see what happens!

Any experiences with Nortriptyline and/or Omega 3 are appreciated!

take care,
