I take 300mg of effexor and 200mg of lamictal. For most people, therapeutic response is between 100-200mg. I actually have no side effects from lamictal. I've been on it for years. I have a mild case of bipolar II. Don't have classic hypomanias. More subtle and depression dominated. Symptoms get worse around that time of the month too.
