New psychiatrist visit today


Recommended Posts

So today seen a new psych for the first time..

He seemed pretty chilled... I was his first hppder ever, so Likley spun him out a bit.... Anyhow... 

He was supportive and for the time being and has approved meds:

Klonopin 

And 

Lamotrogine 

Up to 1 mill per day K pin

And slowly build up the other lamotrogine.. 

Soo not a bad outcome..

I also do have an awesome GP from new Zealand who is very supportive.

Hope everyone is doing good ! 

Cheers

Wow what a combo! I'm very interested to hear about this. I'm currently on klonopin and it has been great. I tried lamictal and although it seemed like a very good medicine I started getting allergic side effects very early on just like with gabapentin, albeit much less severe. Without side effects the klonopin and lamictal combo should be amazing!!

Thankyou ! That is unfortunate you had a reaction! Sorry to hear that.. 

I wonder if you may be able to stay on it a little longer to see if you can tolerate it or possibly adjust. Though if you had a reaction Likley this is not a good idea. 

Yeah it's a really interesting combo

It's interesting that one hypothesis for a cause of hppd is " seizure activity taking place within the occtipical lobe of the brain" 

There are both anti seizure anti epilepsy medications so it kind of makes sense. 

Yeah fingers crossed will keep you all posted !!
