Would like to explain you mi situation.I am 68 today.After retiring 7 years ago I had 3 major depressions and after first one hypomanic episode. I am taking 200 mgs lamictal daily.Today I m fine but I have an important coronary disease and In 2018 I got 2 stentes.Since 4 months I am having a lot of palpitations plus fatigue.I have checked my heart function and it´s ok as my respitarory one.Now when I saw the new investigation regarding LAMICTAL I wonder if not the cause and if I will have to reduce or eliminate but this implies the risk to go again into depresion.Lamictal protects against depresion and not mania mood.
Hope is clear and excuse if my english is not the best.I am from Uruguay
