I take 300mg of Seroquel, 100mg of IR and 200mg of XR, that way I fall asleep faster and the XR should keep me asleep through the night, that's the idea anyway. I think the insomnia from Lamictal will wear off with time. It took about a week at 200-300mg of Seroquel to get some improvement.
After yesterdays success I was a little undecisive about upping the Lamictal dosage, was thinking of staying at 50mg. But I decided to wait to the morning and see how I feel and decide then. Well, I wasn't that eager to get out of bed so I decided to raise the dosage to 100mg.

2.5mg of Abilify is a tiny dose, what is the plan regarding the dosing, do you have a target dose? Interesting to see how it works out for you. Do you think Effexor is doing you any good? I tend to avoid meds that interfere with my sexual function, I hate anorgasmia and other related dysfuntions, but maybe Effexor isn't giving you that sort of problems.
