> I don't need to be sedated because I have no insomnia problems. At this point I thought I would try it for anxiety only since that seems to be a BIG problem for me! Hoping that maybe if I can get a handle on that that maybe other things may fall into place like even a micro ounce of mood control. I do not want to get into taking a whole big amount of this even past 50 mgs.

> My Dr. has not put me on the Lamictal because I am afraid of taking it for the rash worry and because I am terrified of seizure withdrawal because I have a history of seizures....so here I sit. I've read a ton of great reviews on this med from people taking only 12.5 mgs for anxiety and it working wonders for them, so I pray I can be one of them lucky ones!

I wouldn't worry about the rash...it's very rare, and if you start to get a rash, you just have to get checked by a doctor and they can tell you if it's benign or something more serious in which case you would then discontinue the med. Although there is some anecdotes on here about people using really low dose Lamictal (25-50mg) it generally requires a minimum of 100-150mg to get any kind of long tern benefit for mood. Lamictal isn't really an anti-anxiety med...but I think what some people call "anxiety" could be more like a dysphoric hypomania...which Lamictal can help. Hope you feel better soon! Keep working with your doctor and you will find what works for you.
