Since March 1st, Im recently down to 10mg a day of methadone.  I do take xanax once a day and 1 trazadone at night. Pysch RNP wants to add Lamictal 25mg 2x a day.  Will the Lamictal send me into withdrawals? Im scared to go thru withdrawals again.  If im asking my question under the wrong subject can someone please advise as to where i should ask

I weened down from 180mgs of methadone, its easy until you hit 20mgs..but the wd,s are bad!! i did it off 20 mgs in hell for 14 days,,2nd time got down to 3 mgs. I went 21 days from then.your on Xanax you said. I am as well. I stopped the methadone to do my bipolar meds. I was legal from pain doctor.
