hope springs eternal: Lamictal update

I had a good doctor's appointment on Monday. Dr. M agreed it would be worthwhile to try Lamictal again for migraine prevention, so I started it right away. I'm taking 50 mg in the morning and the same in the evening. I'm hopeful, but trying to prepare myself to accept whatever comes my way.

I have very little apprehension about this option simply because I did not have any negative side effects from Lamictal when I tried it last year. After all the hell I went through on other preventatives, such as Topamax, that matters a lot to me.

And I keep trying to remind myself there are other reasonable options for preventative medications that I haven't tried yet if this does not work out. I hope it will, though.
