I definitely had the whole racing thing going on, always worst at night. I found sleep was near impossible..very aggitated and anxious. I think the Lamical has helped with the mind racing but its the Seroquel that has really helped with sleep, for the first time in a long time I actually sleep through the night and the process of falling asleep is a relaxing experience..you just kinda drift...My Pdoc said that the Lamical is usually first noticable once you reach 200-250mg. I find this to be true, so hang in there.


> > I am up to 225mg of Lamical and take 25mg of Seroquel a night. I think its a good combo. I didn't notice any positive effects from the Lamical until I reached the 225mg that I'm at now. I think with Lamical the effects are subtle, you wake up one day and realize you feel more stable. I was diagnosed with a mood disorder and was prescibed Lamical for the purpose of leveling my moods. I also suffer from anxiety and panic attacks and I found that the Seroquel does wonders for that. I was prescribed 50mg to increase to 75mg...man I can't imagine what 75mg would do to me when 25mg knocks me out for 10+hrs....someone earlier in this thread described the feeling when you wake up as " having your head held under water" that hits the nail on the head. I would recommend starting at 12.5mg and working up.
