more that 200mg lamictal- does it help?? ANYONE

Posted by delna on March 24, 2005, at 12:59:59

I was just wondering if anyone has been taking lamictal at doses higher than 200mg. And if you have found it useful.
It has been stated by the manufactures and some studies that above 200mg there are no added therapeutic effects. However I have also seen information saying that the dose can go up to 400mg depending on person's need/response.

I am thoroughly confused. I am on 200mg lamictal and have been doing well (also on Effexor 37.5mg and Wellbutrin 300mg). It was the lamictal that really, really stabilized me.
However lately I have started getting really bad suicidal lows. (BTW I am BPII)
Anyway to cut a long tedious story short, being unresponsive and very hypersensitive to nearly all meds, my only hope of stability is an increase in lamictal dose.

My pdoc is not being much help- he just keeps changing his mind every time a new study comes out.

So if there is anyone who has some clues about the ‘beyond 200mg lamictal dosage’ enigma I would be extremely grateful for inputs.

Thank you
All the best
