I am taking part in another lovely government funded project. Taking a new drug called Lamotrogine for the next six weeks and writing about my experiences.
It's day one today, and after two doses I already feel way more chill. Racing thoughts are slowing down. I still feel energetic, but grounded at the same time.
Minor headache. A bit of dehydration.
Lamotrogine is the first drug besides Lithium to be approved for use with "Bipolar" patients.
I guess we'll see how this goes. Can't really be any worse than Seroquel.
I'm supposed to watch out for a rash in the next thirty hours as my body responds, but so far I'm feeling pretty good. It's hard for me to admit that my natural ways of calming myself aren't working. I'm pretty lucky to have people in my life right now who are able to tell me that I'm flying off the handle a bit.
Staying up all night is obviously not really helping matters.
If only you were actually able to put me to sleep. New application idea there, maybe.
