I was prescribed 25mg of Lamictal today due to borderline personality trait disorder. The doctor is going to heighten my dosage weekly by (I believe) 25mg until I reach 100mg. I just want to see how many people have experienced nausea/vomiting on this medication and how long did it take to go away? I absolutely HATE feeling nauseous and hate vomiting even more... So please let me know.. Thanks!
I have taken Lamactil for over five years and have had no such symptoms. Indeed I've had very few side effects at all. First I would ask your psychiatrist what you should do, second you should remember that all psycho tropic drugs have some side effects that usually last for a while. Wishing you the best.
Lamictal is one of the best drugs in psychiatry as it can have antidepressant and mood maintenance or stabilization effects. I was on it and had no side effects other than dry easily sunburned skin. It didn't really start helping me until 150mgs and at 200mgs I felt great but it gave me flaky red skin so I stopped. Its one of the drugs most likely to help BPD but it can increase anxiety as you adjust to it but that stops
