Lamictal: could someone give me a briefing?

Posted by utopizen on July 13, 2004, at 12:19:04

My doc and I are considering Lamictal (he likes Risperdal, a little too much, but we comprised by getting a script for Abilify).

The idea is I'm a mixed bipolar, which explains a lot. I go from depression to elation multiple times throughout the day.

But it's weird to me how slowing down such cycling lets you be happier (or at least not manic or depressed).

My one concern is, sleepiness. Does it become activating after awhile, or is it going to make me feel like I felt on Neurontin at 1600mg or more-- borderline mental retardation experiences.

I hope it's activating, but this is one drug I know nothing about. It takes weeks to work, right? Anyone notice some help from it? thanks!
