I've posted before about my husband and his difficult child-ness, the fact that he seems to have a mood disorder and that he is a MUCH nicer and happier person since starting Lamictal for his simple-partial seizures last December. It's like I'm finally getting the person I thought I married 18 years ago! He's not seeing our psychiatrist -- or at least hasn't for about four years when he decided he didn't need to anymore. His GP suspects he's got issues because of some things I shared in confidence. (And I insisted to husband that he tell the GP at his last visit how much better he is to live with since starting Lamictal.) So here's my worry now: husband's neurologist is about to pull him off the Lamictal because of the insomnia it's causing. At first, he was just going to have him come off the medication since he's 4 weeks post-op and he thought it would be a good time to see if the seizures are "cured". But I countered that the surgeon wanted to keep him on something until at least May when he goes back for an EEG and MRI. I don't get the feeling from talking to the neuro that he cares much about the mood issues. He's only interested in preventing seizures (which is fine, but I need to consider the whole package). So what do I do if the new medication screws him up again mood-wise? Do I complain to the neuro? Urge husband to go back to the psychiatrist and hope that he's not so oppositional that he'll agree? The GP? What would you all do?
