i have bipolar 2 and i started taking lamictal about 5 months ago and i feel like i just feel worse but i do notice i have less hypomanic episodes according to my family but personally i would take a hypomanic episode over this bad of a depressive episode because these depressive periods are lasting months without any change in how low i feel and i'm having a lot of suicidal thoughts. i'm also afraid to just stop taking it because last time i did for around 3 days i had an intense reaction. i got really angry (and i don't usually experience manic rage ever) and had a really bad panic attack for no reason. i'm not going to do anything without talking to my doctor first but i am just curious to hear other people's experiences with it as well, negative or positive, it doesn't matter.
