> > I'm on 300 of lamictal and one day it mildly works and the next day I'm back to my ahedonic, psuedo dementia depression. My P-doc wants to up the dose but I'm concerned that this drug might just be making the cognitive stuff worse and that along with the anhedonia is the worst aspect of my depression.I guess there's only one way to find out although it's hard to trust this doctor because he's so rushed in his approach.I just want to know what the typical dose of lamictal is for depression. He says that 300 is still a pretty low dose but it's hard to trust him.

I was originally on 200 per day and it worked great but I tapered (slowly)off because I thought my problem (bipolar disorder) was solved. Wrong! After 1 month off, the mood swings came back. Should I start it up again? If so, how swiftly?
