> Scott, quick question...have you ever tried much higher dose lamictal?
I went up to 450 mg once. I couldn't remember my own name. I spent several years at 300 mg. I had constant brain-fog along with profound impairments in short-term memory. It wasn't until I tried reducing the dosage as an experiment that I discovered that 200 mg was the highest dosage I could take without cognitive side effects.
> Or memantine added on,
I tried adding 20 mg to Lamictal. Nothing. When I increased the dosage of memantine to 40 mg, I felt drunk and got scared. I stopped taking it. Perhaps the drunkeness would have disappeared if I stuck with it.
I came upon this not too long ago:
I'll keep memantine on hand, just in case.
Thanks for the suggestion.
