Exactly the same for me. Lamotrigine combined with citalopram has been the first drug in 17 years of medication to really help me. It reduces anxiety, makes me feel less flat, more spontaneous and more myself, in touch with reality. It's still incresing in help after several months. I'm on 300mg a day. I'm not the type to be messianic about anything but I can'y stress enough how much it's helped me. I've been able to concentrate on reading, creating web graphics and other things for the first time in years.nemesis said:Soley Lamotrigine for the time being as the SSRIs seem to make me more aggitated. I'm into my third day on Lamotrigine and Im beginning to feel more stable and connected as each moment passes by. This definitely seems to be the right med.
It's by no means a cure, but it's really helping, which I would not have thought possible after 28 years of depersonalisation.
The negatives are sleelessness and a slightly manic feeling, which is funny as it's also prescibed for manic depression.
