    I thought it was kinda strange how Howard knew all about it. It does seem like a pretty heavy drug... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamotrigine

    apparently it gives you an annoying voice, big jugs and you lose the ability to exercise good judgement in the opposite sex.

    Yes, it is for seizures or trigeminal neuralgia (Face pain) it has a couple other oddball uses in psychiatric and headache applications.

    So what you're saying is once they fix the first part it's a wonder drug.

    Lamictal is used to treat Bi-Polar Disorder. Just listening to Elisa's rushed speech pattern, self described jealousy/obsession/mood swings, and the fact she admitted to going to a psych and being put on Lamictal is a big tip off she has a legit mental disorder. Then add the Benji relationship fiasco, you get the picture she is unstable.I bet she she is crazy in bed though. Manic Depressives have a very high sex drive.

    Well, if she is on Lamictal for Bi-polar, she has been through a few other meds for that disorder. Almost no psychiatrist would start you out on Lamictal for bi-polar. Most would give you lithium, abilify or Selective Norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. Lamictal is like 3rd line or further down. If she is on it for Psych problems, then she's run the gammut.

    Yeah and...? I think you hit it right on. She has a hx. of bizarre, unstable behavior, and not just within the last 6 months of her relationship with Benjy. Do some research as to why she was thrown out of Cobra Starship. Anyone that has worked with, or had the unfortunate luck of having a relationship with a Bi-Polar, could pick up on Elisa's illness within the first 10 minutes of the interview. I see this ending badly for Benjy, especially when she made the comment of not wanting to take her meds anymore. Poor bastard, hypnotized by some crazy pussy.

    It makes you give up sex for three years until a fat balding man licks your pussy.

    I was prescribed Lamictal for manic episodes caused by Effexor XR. I do not believe I am bipolar, I just think the high dose of Effexor, 225mg, put me in the episodes. During the episodes, I spoke very fast, had little sleep, major energy, irritability, walked out of school, and spent a lot of money on unnecessary things. I also stole from stores, which was nothing like me. The Lamictal stabilized my mood. However, I had no filter in what I said. I called my uncle on the phone and screamed at him for not being in my life. I told people in my classes to shut the f*** up. I got into a fight over a petty thing with my co-worker, almost costing me my job. On Lamictal, I was extremely aggressive. I know another person that takes Lamictal who is very aggressive, swears frequently, and has an extremely short temper. Two weeks later, I had to stop Lamictal due to a rash associated with the drug.

    Now I am on Seroquel XR as well as Effexor XR. Seroquel XR helps with my unstable mood and has little side effects compared to Lamictal. The only major side effect of Seroquel is drowsiness, which went away in a month.

    Manic patients have a high sex drive, depressed patients have none.
