Lamictal has been wonderful for me. I have been on it long enough that I can't remember how long it took to kick in, but I know my p-doc set it up for a very slow titration before I arrived at 400 mg. each evening. I have been very stable since stating it.
Don't do it. I became more depressed and cycled deep depression, my moods ave been out of control over the last 18 years I have been on lamictal/lamitrogine. I was on it for epilepsy but it affected my moods horribly. I lost friends and jobs.
