I've been on lamotrigine for bipolar 2 for 3 weeks now. I started at 25mg for one week, 50mg for one week, and now 75mg for one week. Tomorrow I am starting 100mg, which my doctor thinks my therapeutic dosage would be. (I'm a 24 year old woman). So far, i feel no difference. I dont have worsening, or better symptoms. I'm on no other medication. Hoping for a change soon.
Hi, k! It can take as long as 4 ~ 6 weeks of usage to reach therapeutic levels and you're only now getting into the therapeutic dose range (maximum maintenance dosage is 200mg/day). Perhaps giving it time at a sufficient dose will bring about good results.
