My pdoc started me at 25mg today. In ten days wants me to go up to 50mg. She stopped my zoloft, she says she wants to stabalize my mood before adding anything else. She prescribed klonopin to help with anxiety as we go up. How long does it take to work? I'm very nervous about having side effects. Thanks for any help.
The side effects for lamotrigine are minimal and since you are starting on a low dose and slowly working up you'll be able to adjust easier. Lamotrigine is an excellent choice for mood stabilization. Took it for years. Klonopin should help with any residual anxiety just be sure to only take as prescribed. You'll be noticing a difference in a few weeks to a month.
