Lamictal Any positive experiences?

Posted by never2late on February 27, 2012, at 22:59:11


I have been titrating Lamictal for the last week and a half getting ready to go from 25 mg to 50 in a few days.

Current dosing is Effexor 150 XR Concerta 54 mg Klonopin .5 3 X daily and Ritalin IR 10 Mg 2x daily.

I had instability in my moods prior to the Lamictal. Now I just feel a low less severe depression with increased difficulties with motivation, less interest in sex, absolutely no pleasure in anything that I do.

I am not sure if the lamictal is the cause of or if my body has just adjusted to the effexor dose and I need and increase.

Has anyone tried Lamictal as on add on to their AD? Was your experience similar? How do I know if if it is going to work for me (meaning how high of a dosage do I need in order to judge if it is worth sticking with?)

Also does it matter that it is not an XR formula? When dosing at night does the medication stay with me through out the day?

My doc said once I hit 50 mg I would know if it was a good combo. I dont know what to expect as I have been a bit more annoyed with people in general lately, every day is stupid people day. I dunno if this is from the lamictal or not.

Anyway anyone have any POSITIVE experiences to share? I would like to know what to look for to determine if it is a good fit for me.
