In reply to Lamictal stories, please?, posted by socialdeviantjeff on January 14, 2004, at 19:20:46

I achieved more consistent mood once I hit 300 mg. Actually, my therapist noticed the difference even more than I did. The depression has still been *quite* severe at times. I need AD augmentation, but I don't seem to hit the same levels of bristly agitation that I had in the past.

It's not a bad drug in terms of SEs. Don't be discouraged if you don't hit pay dirt at 100 mg, or if you feel better and it fades and you have to increase. The therapeutic range seems to be huge.

I did have SEs during start-up that went away. I felt fluish, and "off" for a couple of weeks - nothing too awful - I went to work and all. And I had tight, painful shoulder and neck muscles for a couple of weeks. I went for a few massages and by then my body had adjusted. I don't mean to scare you or anything. You may have no SEs at all - most people seem to tolerate it well. But if you do notice anything, it should resolve okay.
