I take 200mg of Lamotrigine 1x a day every day for depression, as prescribed, I still have some days that I feel extremely depressed and the new psych I have to see (there are no Psych's that take my insurance within reasonable distance) won't change my dosage or medication, would it be safe to take another pill or even half to pull me out of the low mania I get into?
I would not take more than prescribed 200mg of lamotrigine may not be the problem... it some times take a cocktail of meds to deal with your problem. You may try asking your doc for another med to try and increase the effects of lamotrigine, such as an anxiety med, mood staberlizer,etc because you are still suffering from depression. I wish you all the best, and hope you get the help that you need.
