Hello all!

I have a question: for those of you that have tried lamotrigine for your HPPD, how effective was it? 

Lamictal was good but I got side effects like after Gabapentin although not as bad so I had to stop taking it. It didn't cure me though. I don't remember how effective it was exactly but it did help with anxiety, depression and some of the visuals.

Thanks! What did the Gabapentin do to you, out of curiosity?

I developed some rashes and a bunch of other stuff but I don't remember the details however when I told the doctors, they agreed that I should stop taking it. I took a picture of the rash as well. Oh yeah, and my breathing became shallow.

Funny to me... one of my bestfriends was like yeah of course you should take it, severe side effects are like less than 1%.... and I had bad luck again 🤣

Ikr? 😅 That’s me!! I literally get every freaking bad side effect from most medications I’ve taken. Luckily what I take now (Depakote, Lamictal, Zoloft, Buspar, Wellbutrin and Klonopin) I can handle. I’ve been offered Gabapentin for nerve pain and I’m like, hell no! Most antibiotics wreck me except for Amoxicillin. Supplements wreck me. I can handle Vitamin D. It’s sooo weird. I don’t understand why even vitamins and supplements worsen the HPPD. It sucks!

Supplements made yours worse?! 

Oh you have no idea. I can’t take any damn supplement. I could barely take my prenatal vitamins when I was pregnant (I was in no medications when I was pregnant with my 4 kids.) I can do Vitamin D and my fiber supplement. How about you? Do you have issues with vitamins/supplements?
