What are you taking Lamictil for and have you just started treatment?
Lamictal is used to treat Epilepsy and Bipolar Disorder.
When first starting treatment with Lamictal the dose is gradually increased every few weeks until the optimal dose is found. It is generally considered important to follow these instructions carefully to avoid a potentially fatal skin rash from developing.
It can take 4 to 8 weeks to reach full effect.

I was on lamictal 200 mg for 2 yrs. for deppression noticed that my eye sight was cloudy and blurry and the beginning it went away. So 6 months ago we started on 300 mgs. Now that didn't help, I am on TMS machine to relieve depression. that's why transcranial magnetic stimulation. so going down to 2 1/2 it's not working. that's why we think going down is messing with the tms.

Hi there, my new friend. I'm not going to do research on Lamictal to find out technical information. I'm going to tell you what I know from my own experience with Lamictal. I started taking it 5 years ago. I felt better after a couple days and the full effect in a week or so. At first I started with 2 mg.. Then 3 and I started 4 mg 2 years ago. I feel so good now. It's a miracle!
God bless you, Anna
