I have been on Effexor 150 mg for several years but when my dad died, I broke up with my BF and other life changing events, I cannot seem to shake my depression. Started on Lamictal on June 2. 25mg for 2 week, then 50, then 100 now been on 150 for a week and a half. WHEN will this stuff start to kick in. I have some good days (rare) but never feel Great. I love these posts where people say it just one day kicks in. I am at wits end and really need this to work. Any help in therapeutic dose time frame to kick in would be so helpful. THANK YOU
