Hi Mattias,

Aren't you a bit worried that such a sudden doubling of your dose will provoke a rash? I thought the idea with Lamictal was to increase it slowly and gradually. Perhaps your doctor has had a different type of experience with Lamictal. Dr Ivan Goldberg has the following to say on this subject:

"9. How is treatment with lamotrigine initiated?

In people not taking carbamazepine or valproate, lamotrigine is usually initially prescribed at an initial dose of 12.5 or 25 mg a day and the dose increased by 12.5 or 25 mg every week or two."

Congratulations on your imminent excursion into print. I hope they paid you well, as well as you rightly deserve...

ciao

....Alan
