Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Anyone had low hemaglobin or high white count with lamictal?
    I have been taking Lamictal for about four years now and it works great for bipolar, but my CBC labs have been messed up some since than. The size of my red cells or MCV and MCHC are lower than normal and RDW is higher than normal so I have a slightly microcytic red cell. My hemoglobin has also come down some to around a 12 or so. It has been in the 11's but never below and hasn't been above 13.5 in a long time. Usually a 12.5 or less. My white count is also a little high running any where between 11 and 15. usually around a 12 or 13. While none of these numbers are highly concerning I would like to know what other people have experienced with Lamictal. Let me know what you all know.

  • I take abilify and i have hemerroids
    I take Abilify and all the side effects so fare are posted above
  • Low potasium and mood
    While being treated for cancer about 3 years ago and thus taking a number of blood tests, I was diagnosed with low potassium level and prescribed a regular dosage. I had noticed that when I forgot to take my potassium pills, I soon began to feel more depressed than usual and to feel anxious. Taking the ills soon alleviated these symptoms. (I have had depression for most of my life but long ago decided against taking any of the anti-depression Rx pills because I disliked their side effects, especially on my ability to think clearly.) Very recently I finally got around to looking on the Internet to see whether low potassium was associated with mood disorders _ and I found that it was. This site apparently didn't study anyone my age (I'm 78), so I decided to offer these comments. I have at least one grandchild who has been formally diagnosed with depression, and one who is ADHD. Before finding that the relationship of mood and low potassium was formally known, I had suggested to their parent in a low-key way that perhaps she and they should check with their doctors about their potassium levels. Now I'm quite sure that is something they and their doctors should consider. Meanwhile, I am glad to have found formal study of what had been to me only an anecdotal kind of belief that the two were linked. More importantly, in all my years of doctor visits, no doctor and no psychologist has ever mentioned this link to me. Therefore, I hope that somehow this link is brought more to the forefront of medical attention.
  • Suboxone treatment may have caused my trichotillomania
    It's a long story of how I became addicted to opiates after 15+ years of chronic pain, but I decided to give up pain killers and try suboxone/subutex treatment. Shortly thereafter, I began pulling hair. First from my head, then when the bald spots became too obvious I started pulling from all over. It seemed to be triggered by stress or anxiety but not always. I did not make an association until recently, when I finally stopped the suboxone. It was two weeks of miserable withdrawal, much worse than from pain killers themselves, but I am finally out of the haze I'd be in all of that time, and I have no urge to pull hair whatsoever. I don't know how often the association of suboxone use and trichotillomania has been examined, but I wanted to share my experience in case anyone else is in a similar situation. Also, if you are considering starting suboxone treatment, don't. Withdrawal from opiates will lead to a few pretty rough days, but that's nothing compared to what you'll go through during suboxone withdrawal.
  • Librium 25mg and wellbutrin 300mg for >1 month
    I've been taking librium twice daily, morning and night, for about 3 months now along with wellbutrin XL in the morning. I've basically had the mood of "I don't care" and a great boost in confidence.
  • A life of depression and fatigue
    1) Family history of depression, 2) Diagnosed depression 1964-not treated until 1973, 3) Worked in medical field 35 years, 4) Emergency on-call 24/7, 5) Hospital 15 times major depression, 6) Tried nearly all MAOI, TCA, SSRI, SNRI, and ECT. 7) 100% Disability in 1998 for depression. Now at age 70 I have dysthymia, chronic fatigue, COPD, and PTSD. My recommendation to younger people - do not over stress,
    do not smoke, avoid horrific or traumatic situations and try to find some enjoyment in life. If you have symptoms like mine seek early treatment put balance in your life. The often heard recommendations - get plenty of sleep, eat properly, learn to relax and avoid bad habits should not be ignored, they are critical to good physical and mental health.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • I had a small amount of the hyperpigmentation between the nose and mouth (mustache area) before starting any of the drugs listed above, however, I was on Methadone at the time. That was about 3 years ago. Over the last 2 years it has spread to my cheeks & chin as well. Basically I have darkened skin in the areas of the face that a beard would cover, which causes me to look like I have a beard and mustache.

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I feel fine at rest. Once up and moving short time, dizziness and vision symptoms occur. Tremor occurs in neck...head going up and down...and in left arm more than right. Have had possible MS for a long time, now they think it is Ritalin causing the problem. stopped Ritalin and started Ativan. Same symptoms

    Surely this kid wasn't on all those stimulants at once. If so, the kid's parents should sue the doctor for malpractice/stupidity/attempted murder.
