Hi guys,

I am going up and down; last 2 days speeding like a maniac, then back into exhausted depression todayand almost hysterical when I have to deal with anything (like opening email or calling the pdoc the therapist). Physically so agitated and then angry, then depressed...

This all seems to have gotten worse since both Luvox and Lamictal were increased a few weeks ago. I am on 175 Lamictal and 125 Luvox.
Has anyone had experience with increase in mood swings with either or both of these meds?

Also, anyone had short-term memory loss with Lamictal? I am forgetting quite a lot.

Thanks again. I hope this finds everyone feeling okay,

I know for a fact that mood swings (mania) is increased when starting Lamictal. Perhaps after you level out at the does that works for you, and then start increasing it again it can also happen.

I was told this by two pdocs in relation to friends. If so it should quiet down in time. Try to be safe till then.
