Bipolar II meds Lamotrigine and Buproprion (zyban/Wellbutin)
Posted 14 November 2011 - 08:50 PM
For a fairly recent re diagnosis of bipolar II I am currently taking 400mg Lamotrigine (possibly also called Lamactil??) and last week added 150mg Bupropion Modified Release (Zyban/Wellbutrin) (after tapering of from an ineffective dose of 225mg venlafaxine (effexor XL).
All comments welcomed.

Apologies for the late reply...I really thought that I already had.
Well I had a swift turn around a week yesterday. As always just like a switch and the depression and all accompanied with it vanishes. It is still difficult to know what causes these turnarounds, meds, me, time or a combo of some/all of these. It could well be that the addition of this different somewhat unique class of anti d helped as I had been on it for almost 3wks.
I think that I may well be hypo tho but at the moment I don't care.
Glad you currently have a combo that is keeping you saner.
Take Care and thanks again
