Help - yet another thread on Lamictal dosing.

Posted by Emme on April 30, 2002, at 15:37:04

Hi Folks,

I had a lot of improvement with 75 mg Lamictal and was tolerating it well. Then I got really stressed out over some stressful things and lost some mood control. So...I'm increasing Lamictal and am at 95 now - up to 100 this week. At the moment I'm miserable. I feel very tired and spacey and I feel depressed. I can't figure out if it's just adjustment to the increase (I've had some difficulties during increases before) and maybe I'm feeling depressed because I'm so tired. Or maybe I just can't tolerate this dose and should back it down to 75 again - I tend to be sensitive and use low doses of stuff. Or if it's even just not high enough? I don't know how to dose this stuff, though I suppose I should hang out at 100 mg for a couple of weeks if I can and see how it shakes out....

Anyway...I remember there being discussions about raising/lowering lamictal and optimal dosages. I was curious about where people are at with this drug (Cindylou? Hattree?). Has anyone felt worse when they went up on Lamictal and felt better moodwise (as well as physically) when they went back down a bit?

Thanks so much.
