I started on a very low dose (12,5 mg) because I’m sensitive. Been on it for 4 days and yd I was so hyper. I hate meds that activates me because I have more problem being calm and relax already. Is this how Lamictal will be or is it just startup?
In my experience no it’s not. But 12 mg is too small to know anyways. It’s probably just your mood changing
It was for me when I was titrating up and when I got too 100 or 150mgs then it worked great but caused some skin problems. Hang in there with it
Hi, Leadore! Lamictal can cause some initial increased anxiety, nervousness and sleep disturbances, but this generally subsides over just a few days.
Try to be patient with this medication.
Best regards, Wildcat
