update

I started taking Lamotrigine for the bi-polar three weeks ago
everything is going great. surprising I havent had to take pain meds for fibro or lupus. and have been able to get off celexa and amitiptyline

so one new med for three .wonders

I have had a chest cold and blow up of copd. so my pred has been raised to 30 mg for ten days. so the apartment is very clean :lol:
it will be nice to get off the extra pred and see what happens with just the lamotrigine. it seems to be a wonder med for me

my bone desitity was not very good this time.so I have started a new med for that.
but this is one happy person . I mentioned the pain pills for fibro (not needing to take) to the doctor and she mentioned that it might be something she will try for her other fibro patients.

perhaps a new research.

thank you for everyone's support through all of this

Good luck with the new medication Goats. We have a family member who is bipolar and it has taken a long time to find something to help him level out a bit, but he seems to be just about there right now. He is feeling he might even be able to return to work soon after several years of being unable to function well enough to do so. It is a difficult way to be until you find something that works for you. I will mention Lamotrigine to him. Keep us in the loop.

Take care and all the very best.

Carol, This is such good news re. the bipolar. Even the steroids have had a good spin off in you getting the place sparkling. Well Done to you, all this must have taken quite an effort and bravery on your part.
