From this study (4 years ago):
After taking Clariton D for three days. My original side effects from the Lamictal returned very fast. I was tired and nervous and had a panic attack for no reason. Had been on Lamictal for 1 year. Stopped using Clariton D and I feel normal now.
From this study (4 years ago):
I was diagnosed as being bipolar 15 years ago. I have been stable and highly-functioning for a few years until Blue Cross Blue Shield decided they did not like my antipsychotic anymore, and refused to pay for it. I have been forced to suddenly change from the perfectly-balanced Abilify/Lamictal combination that has worked for years to Geodon. Right now, my mental state is that of a bipolar person who has not been medicated for a month, so I am quite frankly, unhinged. Another Doctor gave me a Medrol Steroid pack today for some sudden back pain, and it was not until after I took it that my kooked-out brain thought to read the medication insert. Now, I do not know if I am truly slipping even further from sanity, or if it is all in my head because the steroid can enhance existing mood instability. It doesn't help either that that steroid is also cautioned against for people with hypothyroidism, which I was diagnosed with 10 years ago. I truly need a voice of reason to tell me what is really happening now, because I am not capable of making an accurate judgment on reality anymore since my psyche meds were soooooo unnecessarily and suddenly changed.
