I Want To Know Some Of The Side Effect Of Some Of The Meds I Take.

I was diagnosed with Epilepsy, severe sleep apnea, Lupus, sjogren's syndrome. I take 2 x 1000mg of divalproex and 2 x 200mg of Hyroxychloroquine per day. Plus 2 baby aspirin for another autoimmune decease. I feel very fatigued, unmotivated, and sad. I feel like it’s my medication that is causing this. Anyone else have same side effects?

Problems Sleeping

Problems Sleeping

Since moving over to a low dose of lamotrogine I find I'm less drowsy in the day but can't sleep at night. Before being diagnosed I used to take herbal night time remedies to help me sleep. Does anyone else take things to help them sleep or is it best to avoid this when taking epilepsy tablets?

Teva Lamotrigine Vs PMS Lamotrigine

Teva Lamotrigine Vs PMS Lamotrigine

I was originally on Teva Lamotrigine, but my pharmacist gave me the PMS version because the Teva were out of stock. Does it really make a big difference?
I know that PMS Lamotrigine is mainly used for Bipolar Disorder, but it is basically the same molecule as the Teva Lamotrigine.
Any thoughts on this ?
