He feels terrible. So so drowsy! Just feel awful in general. He is also in Geodon 100 mg per day. Could this be to much?
I am a 52 year old male with epilepsy and have been on lamictal for 15 years. Since beginning the medicine, I've been totally seizure free. I take 250mg in the morning and 250mg in the evening. I have never experienced any drowsiness what so ever. I do know some people with bipolar on lamictal, but not even close to 600mg. I don't know the severity of your son's illness, but that seems very high. Of course everyone is different Geodon can cause drowsiness, weight gain and other side effects. Just google it. Lamictal can cause sleepiness or insomnia. I would definitely have a discussion with the doctor. Don't hesitate to get a second opinion. Even talking to a Pharmacist can be helpful.
