Niether: Niether have strong evidence supporting their use in anxiety. Neurontin's effects on anxiety are thought to be mediated through its effects on the inhibitory neurotransmitter gaba (similar to, but much more subtly than, benzodiazepines). Lamictal is still being investigated for use in anxiety because it can reduce activity of the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamine. ...Read more

Is it a better idea to take lamictal a few hours later than tegretol...I've heard together they can cause anxiety.
Side Effects Worries: Usually the best plan is to take your medications together. Why? Because if you take medications more than twice a day the medication schedule starts to control you, and you are more likely to forget to take them. Every patient does not have the same side effects. The person reporting the side effects may have other factors unknown to us. Keep a medication/side effect diary to track your own. ...Read more
Can anything deadly or harmful for the body happen If you don't take zoloft (sertraline) and lamictal the same time every day? Or is this just irrational anxiety?
No: As long as you don't take either medication too close together. I often prescribe Zoloft (sertraline) at bedtime as it may be sedating for soe people. Lamictaliusually prescribe in am. Themost important thing is that you take both daily on a consistent basis. Relax take some deep breathes and know tht we are here on Healthtap 24/7 to answer your questions ...Read more
Never been allergic to Zoloft (sertraline) and lamictal, which I am using now.!! What is the chances that I will become allergic to them now? Is this just anxiety?
May need further eva: If you developed a rash recently, this needs to be evaluated further. Lamictal, in particular, may need to be discontinued. The fact that you did not have a rash before while on Lamictal does not preclude the possibility that you have developed a reaction to it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I take 30 Cymbalta (duloxetine) at 7am and 1mg klonopin and 100 lamictal at 9 am...some sedation until 1pm but anxiety comes back at 5pm any thoughts on dosing?
If you have tolerated Zoloft (sertraline) & Lamictal for over a year. Then it's unlikely to suddenly become allergic to them? I'm asking because of health anxiety.
Probably not specify: There have been cases of delayed hypersensitivity to Lamictal, however, to the best of my knowledge it would not occur years after being stable on both meds. Are you saying that you have a health anxiety that you think is allergic in nature? Or are you experiencing specific allergic reaction symptoms- if so what are they? ...Read more

I have bipolar why does my doctor have me on lamictal and gordon, and i've seen on everything for anxiety it seems at i can is the current and amdien.
I am confused : Because i see klonopin, Paxil ; lithium listed as your medications. Lamictal is a mood stabilizer. Geodon (ziprasidone) is an atypical antispychotic. Ambien is for sleep. Both mood stabilizers and atypical antipsychotics can be used for the treatment of bipolar disorder. Most psychiatrists are shying away from treating bipolar disorder with antidepressants. Take care. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Can you suddenly become allergic to Zoloft (sertraline) and Lamictal? I'm not allergic to them. Yet I'm afraid it will make my tongue and throath swell. Anxiety?
Fear of allergy: To be clear, you're saying you suffer from anxiety, hypochondriasis, and that you are not currently having any allergy/physical symptoms? It sounds like you are having sxs of hypochondriasis and anxiety = fear that you will develop a sudden allergy to your meds. As you've no physical symptoms at all now, risk of hypersensitivity is quite low. ...Read more
