Good news! I think Moon has become a daughter to many of us.

I think most people tolerate 300 mg of Lamictal well. Others - myself included - suffer memory and cognitive impairments at dosages above 200 mg. If memory impairments and "brain-fog" become issues, don't forget to look at Lamictal as a possible culprit. Other than that, it looks like Moon will now have the life she deserves. You are in no small way directly responsible for this.
