> yes i take 2 200mg in the morning, but i started taking it at night because i don't like the way it makes me think during the day, but i can't stop lamictal totally because of the withdrawl.....i see my doc in a couple weeks.....

> lamotragine is vary successful in many people, just it's not working for my symptoms, i don't have rapid mood swings, my doc suggested to take it for depression added to the prozac.....so i complied and started it, but i don't think it's treating my syptoms, i have trouble concentrating and mainly just depression.....that the base line of everything, and anxiety at sometimes...but it's not severe, just makes things unpleasant

I won't go near 400 mg/day. I can't remember my own name when I do. For me, 300 mg/day is much better. I does not produce significant cognitive or memory impairments. In fact, because these impairments are integral parts of my illness, the improvement in my condition afforded me by lamotrigine actually improves them.

I would not controvert your doctor's instructions in this case. Either take lamotrigine twice a day as he directed or ask him to prescribe Lamictal XR for once-a-day administration.
