Lamictal has been great for me. No poop out. Why did you cut back on your dose like that? I think we do that sometimes because we are starting to go into a depression and we think a particular drug may not be working. It usually results in a crash and burn. Now it could be you are going through a depression episode which is overwhelming your dose. I would stay on it. Increase the dose slowly with your docotor's approval. Don't go on and off it (or anything else) that way and see how you are in a month or two.
About the poop out thing. They say about word of mouth news, if something works great you'll tell three other people about it, if it stinks you'll tell ten. Who knows these meds have such different effects person to person.
