I wasn't sure if this was the right forum for this post or not. If anyone knows where on here to redirect this, please let me know.

I've been on a few different medications for a while now (amitriptyline, Effexor, and lamictal) and I'm finally finding a sort of level after years.
The issues with that are, even though I'm less anxious and depressed, I'm still having a hard time pulling myself out of those lows some days. It's not nearly as bad as it was about three years ago though.
I'm also having odd hallucinations just as I'm falling asleep or when I wake up in the morning. I don't know if that's a result of the combined meds or something else I should be concerned about.

Has anyone else who takes either of those meds ever dealt with anything like that?
