I was unable to access the Grand Rounds so forgive me if this question was covered:
Have you heard of a tolerance to Lamictal happenning to BPs? A number of people on this board are continuously titrating their dose in order to maintiain the AD effects. I am currently taking 75 mg. and am tirtating by about 12.5 a week. Of course, I understand this is below a therapuetic level but I am worried that once the maximum dosage is obtained(say 400 mg.), a tolerance will happen and depression will set in. I am wary of the prospect of losing the AD effects as I am unable to tolerate SSRIs.
Your response is greatly appreciated,
