I am definitely an exception. Lamictal has a host of side effects including significant cognitive problems, sleep disturbances, muscle contractions in my neck, larynx, and esophagus. Daily headaches and light sensitiviy. Obsessiveness and hypomanic symptoms also.

I can't take more than 125mgs/day without the symptoms becoming too bad. Combine with Celexa and the SE's are way exacerbated.

I'm aware at this dose that I'm not getting the full benefit of the drug. Also I can't really reduce without falling apart. I would have to take a few months off if I were to try.

I concur with the Lamictal vs non-Teva generics assessment Scott made. For me they are almost like different drugs. Fewer side effects with the generics but with more of a flattening effect...when I get obsessive they are dark obsessions; The "blue ones" boost my mood and motivation much more but the side effects are kinda bananas.
