Hey Maxime,
Sorry to hear that things aren't going so well for you.
I am looking at the BNF (british National Formulatory) so I don't know if it's the same in Canada, but the recommended titration schedule is this: LAMOTRIGINE (Lamictal)
Monotherapy - initially 25mg daily for 14 days, increased to 50mg for further 14dyas, then increase by max 50-100mg every 7-14days.. Usual monotherapy 100-200mg daily in two divided doses (ie: half in the am, half in the pm.)

Hope this helps.
You should double check with your GP, that that is what you require, because the titration is different depending on what other meds you're taking AND it's only liscensed in the UK for epilepsy, so dose for BP may be different.

Take care and keep me posted.
By the way: am on Zyprexa again, the p.doc got his way and ruined my hightened sensitivity. (re: my last posts)
