lamictal and sleep

Posted by DonnaM on May 8, 2002, at 11:02:10

I have been on lamictal for a couple of weeks, first on 12.5 mg and now on 25 mg. I have had on and off severe insomnia for several years and have been sleeping poorly since being on lamictal. My sleep med (imovane) hasn't been working at the usual dose so I'm wondering if anyone has found lamictal to affect their sleep, either helping or making it worse. During the day I am so exhausted from lack of sleep (and possible side effect of lamictal) that I can barely function. For those who lamictal caused insomnia did it go away in time or with increased dose of lamictal? BTW I have dysthymia, possibly cyclothymia, fibromyalgia, sleep disorder, previous panic disorder, GAD and have tried a couple of dozen meds in the last several years.
