... 200mg. Before starting Lamictal, I was feeling great; had all my emotions, sleeping fine. Now that I've been taking Lamictal, the first two weeks at 25mg, I was going to sleep around 9pm and up by 5am with all the energy in the world. Actually completely cleaned out and repainted the whole house in two weeks. Was afraid I was going manic. But now going on my second week at 50mg, I've started to become tiresome, listless, and almost emotionless again. Could it be the Lamictal? Should I jump the dose up higher and see if things get better? Has anyone else experienced this? I don't want to be a walking talking zombie again!! BTW, taking it for Bi-Polar I disorder.
Hi Manic; this is the hardest part of regulating the medications, But it is very important that you do not change them by yourself keep your doctor involved. These are very good anti-seizure medication when others would not work for people. What I would do my friend is call the doctor and ask what direction you should go just maybe you don;t need as much of the Topamax, Or it is taking a bit longer to get in your system. but only a blood test would say for sure. And the doctor would know if it well registers yet. but this is like a finely tuned machine. getting the Lamactil and the Topamax in just the right combination. please call your doctor on this one. you sure don't need any seizures. etc but you sound great. I feel it maybe you overdid it at first and now it is catching up with you. My friend. but it is always best to be safe than sorry. let the doctor know. Chuck1957 please keep me in the loop would like to know how you're doing. Most of my customers only took the Lamactil. so this is a new therapy for me too. Chuck.
