Hi Jane,
I also experienced the minor skin irrations (which are subsiding now) and I still have some trouble sleeping ... I take Klonapin which helps.

I do think I'm seeing some results now -- just talked to my pdoc yesterday and we agreed that I don't have the same sense of "urgency" and "desperation" that I had before the Lamictal. I do still have the depression, however, and we are trying out some ADs to use along with the Lamictal. I am taking Serzone, but only 100 mg because I can't tolerate the fatigue at any higher dose, so we are going to try adding Paxil since I also have quite a bit of anxiety. We'll see what happens! Celexa will be our next try if I can't handle the Paxil.

Have you had any trouble/side effects when you titrate up? For me, every time I increased the Lamictal the first week was hell -- lots of agitation and fatigue ... almost the opposite of what it's supposed to do for me. But after a week I seemed to level off and get to a better place. We're going to hold off increasing the dose for awhile and see what happens with the Paxil.

What dosage are you trying to reach? Have you seen any benefit yet?

Thanks for the post, and good luck to you on the Lamictal!

> Isn't Christmas the worst? Whatever gets you through roughly intact. Personally, I think it would take intravenous crank to avoid putting on weight over the next two weeks. All that despair, and so many fattening carbs.
> Cindy-Lou, I'm about twenty-five mg behind you on the Lamictal. So far, other than a couple of minor skin reactions and some trouble sleeping, I'm not feeling much of anything. Have you felt any beneficial effects yet? This titration is ... so ... slow.
