"No interactions with lamictal", it said on the tin.

And then my new blood results are back and my level has dropped back to sub-effective levels. Goddammit.

I'm going to get another blood test done on Monday, to check if that one wasn't a fluke, but it looks like I might have to go off the pill again. Because it might be fucking with my lamictal levels and that can be dangerous. Great. And I can't just up the lamictal dose because then it might overshoot when I'm in the week where I don't take the contraceptive.

Yes, being on meds is a good thing. But it can also be a pain in the ass because you have to check and double check EVERYTHING for interactions. Hell, eating grapefruit can throw my levels off.

Pharmacology is a bitch. And it's a bitch I'll have to live with until I either die or they come up with a better medication for bipolar II. Seeing how much research is being done in that direction, I'm steeling myself for another 40+ years of this. -_-
