Hey ladies!



So, if any of you have taken Lamictal for Bipolar disorder, at what mg did it start to kick in and work for you? By working for you, what did you see that was a instant change? I think I am almost at the point where I'm at a stable mg dosage, but still have some issues. So, I'm hoping after a go up another 50-100mg... I will feel complete relief.



Thanks for any info ladies :)

See I am at 100 mg now and have upped every appt which is 4weeks apart. I think I am almost at my good point with this med. I've heard it was great for helping with moods as well.

I love lamictal, worked for me probably at 50mg. But I was also on Klodipin (.5 mg 3x a day)... I just felt more stable.

I take Xanax as well with it, I can tell a difference but not all the way. I still have some days...but working with it:)
