John - Be agressive with your treatment. Don't be afraid to ask your doctor for higher doses if and when needed. Especially with Lamictal since it basically has no terrible side effects as long as you increase the dose gradually (to prevent a very serious rash).

Also, when you read about "maximum" doses of drugs, take that with a grain of salt. Many times these doses come from short term studies. But in real life, people are on drugs for a much longer period of time and might eventually require higher doses than that of the studies.

I feel the best I've felt in a few months really, I think its doing something, but not too sure. My moods are still quite unstable. I'm on 100mg at the moment, I was wondering at what dosage people began to feel the real effects of the drug? I've read that the mood stabilizing happens between 100 - 200mg. Do you feel going up to 150mg will have a better effect than the 150mg? I'm having no side effects, so will probably stick with this one for a while - even if it means experimenting with doses higher than 150mg.
