I also suffer from bipolar disorder and when I was on lamotrigine it took about 4 to 6 weeks for its full effect to kick in.
Be patient, this medication is used off label as a mood stabilizer and it is quite good, at least it was for me. As you know we all react to medications in our own unique way.
Best of luck.-

That´s the spirit, you must have a positive mental attitude at all costs and times.

Hi, AmyJane! I'm Bipolar too ~ rapid/mixed cycles. I took Lamictal for several years and after about a month it worked very well for me. I had to stop it for another medical reason but I'd highly recommend you give it a try. It sounds like you're sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Best wishes, WCV
