Has anyone had any exprience with this??

I just started my lamictal on friday. So far I have noticed that the thoughts in my head have quited down significantly. I can only hope at what more will come as the medicine begins to work and as I reach the doctors desired dose.

I took an ativan today, and I was wondering what other peoples exprience of these two meds are. I feel slow and out of it... which I suppose is to be expected of an anti anxiety med.

I get a little worried sometimes with my addiction history and how this med will effect me. I have a close friend who was with me today when I took it. (SuperChan to the rescue) She knows my histroy and she is great support for me. making sure I only take it when I need it. Still... I worry about myself. This is aside from the point.

Does functioning ability increase as you get used to the way ativan effects you, or should I just plan to be in a low state of functioning when I take it??

I apologize if this doesn't make much sense... or if things are out of order... I feel somewhat dyslexic on this... mixing things up forwards and backwards and sideways.. and downwards... and any other direction that one can think of. Maybe its just time for bed.

I have never heard of lamicral? Now Ativan I can vouch for. It is in the same family of benzos as Xanax and Valium. They are all very similar ro me. I have taken Ativan for several years at a time. You usually overcome the majority of the slowed+down felling, usually. Is there a brand name for that lamicral? To me it sounds like some kind of herbal remedy or something. If it bothers you too badly I would call my doctor,

Your functioning ability should get better as you adjust to the medications. Give it a bit of time and the side effect should lessen if not completely go away.
