I am looking to wean off my current medications which are used to treat my Bipolar Disorder II, which include:
100 mg Zoloft daily
100 mg Lamictal daily
Xannax on an as needed (emergency) basis - about .25mg - .5mg every other week.
I have heard all the scares of being sure to wean off slowly with the Lamictal (10-25% every 2 weeks), but I haven't seen much about how to do so with the combination of meds. Should I do so with the Zoloft as well?
I tend to have more issues with mania (especially insomnia, racing thoughts, and anxiety) than depression. I am ok with continuing the Xannax as needed, but would like to get rid of the constant daily meds. I have side effects immediately when I miss a dose, and I am not feeling comfortable relying on this with my Insurance being set to expire in a few months (looking to treat with more natural/organic means).
I would very much appreciate your thoughts! Thank you!
