I just wanted to put this out there...
I have a history of depression and anxiety, so when I hit perimenopause, the symptoms got worse.
I had already been taking Seroquel & Lexapro, but due to the panic attacks and mood swings, my dr added lamictil to my treatment plan. Also, she increased the Seroquel dose by 25 mg.
It's helped alot. I am virtually anxiety-free now days and my mood swings are much less severe.
I have to put my 17-year old cat down today, and although I am grieving, I am not desperately anxious or out-of-control-depressed. I feel like I'm having a somewhat normal, healthy reaction to this sad event.
I just wanted to share this with you...mood stabilizers have definitely helped me and I hope that they can help you as well.
Stay strong and remember that you're not alone.
