- Do not take lamictal or seroquel while pregnant.
I had a miscarriage at around 8 weeks. I am a healthy 20 year old with absolutely no health conditions besides bipolar disorder. No one in my family has ever had a miscarriage in my family, and I'm convinced it was the drugs. Ladies, do NOT take these while pregnant.

having major problems with erectile dysfunction. Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated.
From this study (7 months ago):
I feel that i get depressed and anxiety when the medication wears off. Also the irritability does too. My biggest concern is the sexual dysfunction. I've been taking both medications for about a week now and its the first time I've experienced it. I cant even get myself hard and i feel that my penis has either gotten smaller or i have a smaller flaccid. I really dont want this happening all the time. Having sex with my girlfriend is my favorite thing to do and she really loves it too. She talks dirty and can be laying next to me naked but i still wont get hard or I'll get a soft hard after some touching. It used to be so easy to get an erection. Please help.
From this study (7 months ago):
It used to be so easy to get an erection. It would take a touch or quick rub to get hard...really hard .. After taking vyvanse and lamotrigine for about a week. I've gotten my first erectile dysfuntion. It took so long to get hard and i would barely even get hard. It was like a hard soft. I really dont want this becoming a problem. Having sex is my favorite thing to do. Thank you
