"You may need a mood stabilizer." She named a few, then said she prefers Lamictal, and I'm to do research on it.
We're going to titrate the Zoloft/Wellbutrin combo, seehow that works out, then try Lamictal.
I had been thinking that she and I didn't mesh too well, wasn't really very happy with her manner, at first, but the fact that she took my serotonin syndrome symptoms seriously told me a lot. She does care. Today, she took a step back and started listening a little better, and that's when she said we might need to do a mood stabilizer.
I've said before and I'll say again: regardless of diagnosis, I'm just ready to get whatever's going on under control. I know that dx is important in telling the doc where to start, and also, in many cases, the course of treatment, but as long as there's somewhere to go, here, or the symptoms are under control, that doesn't matter as much, in my situation. IOW, SHE may need a specific dx, but I'm not tied to one. I have my suspicions, but it doesn't matter, so long as I'm able to function at my own personal capacity again.
