I tried this, was recommended it by Sierra himself who write a letter to my GP. Considering he is a consultant Psychiatrist he saw me at short notice, for free, for 2 hours and wrote a letter to my GP recommending Lamotrigine, Escitalipram and modafinil. My original GP refused modafinil but my new one did prescribe it, which I really hoped would help. But unfortunately it did nothing for me but give my the shits and insomnia. I have enough issues falling asleep without that causing issues

I digress, lamotrigine did absolutely nothing for me, took it for a couple of months I think. It is relatively safe but can cause a life threatening rash which is rare but to be kept an eye on. This one supposedly calms glutamate and increases GABA, but for me I felt nothing whatsoever, nothing changed. Felt like a sugar pill unfortunately and did nothing for me

Low dose modafinil or caffeine? I was thinking of trying modafinil again at some point and take a lower dose and work my way up.

It could be stress, goes without saying its always good to eliminate as much as possible for DP. Sleep is the biggest issue usually
