If lamotrigine IS the cause and is blocking the effects of LSD
then it won't take long (few weeks prob) to return to normal.
THREE quite serious problems with that:
a) coming of lamictal may well be BAD and potentially risky for bipolar disorder. (Depends on diagnosis, severity, something that can't be calculated purely from discussion on this forum)
b) taking LSD may be equally BAD or risky for bipolar disorder.
c) If you have just started lamotrigine (See below - increased risk of serious skin reactions)
How long have they been taking lamotrigine?
Lamotrigine has two VERY serious side effects (as well as other s/e)
- Stevens-Johnson Syndrome
- Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis
[The risk is apparantely the most serious in the first 2 - 8 weeks but importantly when the drug is stopped for a short time and normal dosing resumed subsequently - this is VERY applicable to someone stopping just to appreciate the effects of LSD and resuming afterwards, blood tests are usually taken during initial phase]
As for abuse potential (in general) of lamotrigine:
LESS than zero in SWIMS opinion. It's not fun, many potential generally unfun side effects
and some very serious side effects (namely those above). Useful for monitored medical conditions anything else and NO not worth it.
Abuse potential of seroquel:
Low doses probably has similar effects to first generation anti-histamines (which is it's main effect @ such concentrations). Any higher dose and you get D2 blocking and other anti-pychotic effects (VERY UNFUN) & will definately block 5HT2a receptors. In other words completely pointless unless medically prescribed for a diagnosed condition.
Both far worse than benzodiazepines and both have more serious side effects. (with the possible acception of low addiction
potential which is useful if taken for medical reasons)
