  1. Lamictal (lamotrigine) for Bipolar Disorder: I began taking Lamictal for lower body spasticity due to an injury to my CNS. My neurologist decided to try Lamictal in order to prevent these seizure-like episodes from occurring daily, and it worked; however, it made an even bigger impact on my mental and emotional state. At 19, I’ve dealt with depression, severe anxiety, and irritability for approximately 5 years now, and the stability I gained from taking this medication (for convulsions!) has absolutely changed my life.
