I'm up to 600mg (supposedly the maximum dose). I am feeling a lot of benefits, although I'm still cycling.
If there are no side effects you may want to go up to the maximum just to see if you get any benefit.
> I gave Lamictal six weeks at 150mg and have been on 200mg for a week now. I have felt nothing positive or negative from the drug (no unbearable side effects). I have given each dosage a chance to work. My depression is mainly apathetic, feeling extremely slowed down, and anxiety. Have any of you had absolutely no response at all until a higher dosage is reached above 200mg? This is the only medicine that I'm taking for bipolar II. Should I give up on Lamictal?
