I was on Topamax for about a year and stopped taking it because of the horrible side affect. I'm trying Lamictal now. I'm up to 150 milligrams now. I haven't experience really bad side effects. I am having some itching when my does was up to 150 milligrams which I hope goes away. I do feel so much better since taking Lamictal. I don't feel so depressed and I'm more active. I do like this medicine so far. How has it helped everybody else
