I have been off my meds for 3 weeks I just got my new prescription that I take 300 milligrams and night is it okay to start it back where I left off
I prescribed Lamitcal as well and sadly my therapist passed away and took me about 5mos to find another Dr. I took 200mg a day and he started me right back my last dosage. I think it would be no big deal to start back on your usual dose but always speak to your Dr. I had no reaction or weird effects. Hope I helped!
Yes, Sharmell; I would do just as sweetvirgo said so you can reach your blood level faster. But if for any reason your worried about too much drowsiness in the am like your working or whatever you could also start with 1/2 tablet. It is really up to you but I have filled a lot of prescriptions with a starting dose of 300 plus mg please don't worry and Happy New Year Chuck1957 also a Virgo so we can't both be wrong lol
