Hi :). I need some input on this issue. The medications I am taking now are: quetiapine 25mg night, lamotrigine 100mg night, wellbutrin 150mg twice a day. And inderal 10mg as needed for anxiety.
Lamotrigine gave me a rash, wellbutrin (generic version) made me irritable and snippy at everything. The seroquel (generic version) has been wonderful, although it makes me hungry but since I take it at night I try not to stay awake with it. Inderal (propranolol) gave me apathy so I am taking less.
The new medication I was prescribed is Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg in the morning, trileptal (oxcarbazepin) 150mg twice a day. Seroquel and inderal are still the same.
My issue is withdrawal from medication. I have asked my pdoc- he says I don't need to taper off. Will the new medication replace the old, that way the withdrawl is not bad? I did a little bit of searching and it seems the withdrawl from the lamotrigine may be bad. I have been taking it for about a year now. The wellbutrin for about a month.
What are your experiences with withdrawal?
