Hi Phillipa,

There's definitely no mania stuff going on here.

The prozac has worn off, but it was only 2.5mg for 4 days, so it wasn't much to begin with. I had recently changed my zyprexa dose from 2.5mg in the evening to 1.25 in the evening and 1.25 at lunch.

I was actually liking lamictal at first. Maybe I'm one of those people that respond well to ultra low doses of it, maybe just every other day, and that by following standard dosing guidelines I went too far.

We all know how mileage varies. Someone commented that they do just fine on 6mg lamictal and no more than that. I think so often docs and we are in a hurry to reach what they call "therapeutic doses" and in doing so forget that each person is unique.
