Been diagnosed Bipolar 1 after 6 months extreme mania/hallucinations/psychosis. Taking 125mg Depakote/ 150mg Lamictal/ 40mg Celexa. I titrated down on the depakote from 250mg and titrated up on Lamictal 25mg/50mg/100mg now 150mg. I have been on this coctail for 20 days now and feel worse than ever. Depressed, sad, irritated, angry and total loss of energy. Can someone tell me does it take lamictal a full 6-8 weeks to work?
