The only recognized use of Lamictal by the FDA is as an add-on to things like Depakote, phenytoin, and phenobarbital. Therefore, the only schedule recommended in the drug label is for this approved drug combination use. Each of these drugs interact with the others to produce different blood levels.

We've made the jump to 50mgs w/out incident. And may use the schedule you suggested [it's identical to her earlier start-up] but w/ 7 day interval between increases. Still doing risk/benefit calculation and being deeply scared.
The rash, if it appears and progresses, is a bona fide bitch. And I really want to get rid of the adderall -- a dangerous emergency measure.

Will keep posting.
