Re: lamictal and best dosage scatterbrained

I do well with 150 mg of Lamictal. This seems to be the "median" dose, but as with all these meds, doses are highly individual-specific. Perhaps you could try adding another med? Provigil might be worth a try, as something easy to get, stimulating (usually without anxiety), and with a fast response (i.e., you should know whether or not it's right for you in a couple of days).

Otherwise, there's a wide range of ADs to try, and don't dismiss the benzos (especially Klonopin). Benzos are demonized by many doctors, but can work very well if your depression is anxiety-based and you can get your doctor to prescribe them.

Good luck!
