Re: Lamictal-What's high dosage??

I don't know since I can't seem to go past 75mg on lamictal. It causes anxiety and that is my bane. This is unusual since I was at one time on 300mg zoloft, another time on 90mg of Remeron. Each increase helped for a while but then the antidepressant effect wore off and I was left with the body twitches. For me, the breakthrough came when I realized I was Bipolar 2 and no amount of SSRIs was going to work without adding lithium.

Why do you want to increase, are you not getting good antidepressant results from lamictal? I've heard of people going up to 400mg and above, but perhaps you need to add another class of med if you're not quite getting there.

> I have taken 150mg Zoloft, 1000 Depakote, 60mg Remeron, 160 Geodon, 600-700 Seroquel... not all at the same time of course. I found the most beneficial dosages to be around those dosages if not slightly lower. It seemed though, that all the increases helped. Should I ask my doc if I should increase past 100mg/2x ? Thanks for your help!
