a friend ,female 53 who has been on alzam for 4 years and cipramol for 4 years recently started taking lamicton after being hospitalised for a sleep attack..where she was unable to get up and do basic things ,couldnt go to work etc, depressed...following 2 traumatic experiences retrenchment and relationship breakup.
she spent 10 days in a pshyce ward , under meds like zyprexa etc.
after regular visits with the phsyciatrist he prescribed lamicton even tho she is not bipolar
and he knew it.
she also takes recreational drugs in small amounts like cocaine , khat , mdma over last 3 years. once a month an all nite party .
she has not stopped the sleep attacks and suffers terrible anxiety
leading up to and during them .
i feel lamicton is to blame , and maybe alzam , and cipromol
can u advise wat u think she should do to get her happiness and energy back?
