hi,I think it is well worth it ,it took me awhile too get use to it also,I am very sensitive to medication.after a month being on it, my system finally ajusted to it.My doc gave me a start kit,50mg two weeks 100,two weeks,150mg two weeks now I take 150 in the morning and 150 at night,hopefully your doc is starting you slow on this medication.I might of even started at 25mg,Ihave been on it for 4 years now,I even took it during my pregnancy. Ask your doctor about the lamictal start kit. good luck.
i'm in my first week of lamictal, slow starter kit, and seroquel 300mg to start. i take the seroquel at night and the lamictal in the morning every other day for now. i guess i'm better... dunno. i know the seroquel needs to go higher because it's not knocking me out like it did before and i'm waking up during the night. but i do have a bit more energy. oh, i also take 60mg of cymbalta and 4-6 mg ativan daily. seems like too much medicine to me.... ?
I'm currently taking 200mg of Lamotrigine daily. I've been on it for two years now and so far I haven't had any problems. I get dizzy sometimes and if I miss a dose I tend to get really irritable and confrontational.
I've found that it works great for the depression but doesn't really do much for the hypomania. Are other people finding this as well?
