Only maois have ever worked for me and Im hoping that marplan can work too, even though it is supposedly weaker than the other two.

I dont just feel stuck, I feel suicidal and cannot think clearly. The mental pain is unbearable and it has been going on for too long.

1. I reduced the lamotrigine to 125 mg
2. I went up to 200 mg but there was no difference between 100 and 200 and there were too many side effects.... too much loss of hair, loss of memory and ability to express myself etc..
3.original lamictal, but when it worked for 6 weeks at 125 mg, it was with a generic. When I switched to lamictal, it soon stopped working. When I switched back to the same generic, it wouldnt work either.

Yes same pharmacy

It only worked with one particular generic, but no longer does with that generic or with lamictal either.

Yes my memory has been impaired all along.
Maybe my memory is worse now because of the overwhelming anxiety.

I dont seem to react in any logical way to anything. I cant see a way out. sorry if this is muddled. Thank you for caring
