I have been on Lamictal for three years to help with bipolar disorder. I have had few problems except for minor headaches. Recently I was off my medication for a month because I was unable to see my doctor for a refill. I was put back on Lamictal with my small dosage of twenty five milligrams twice a day. Now I having awful mood swings which mainly consist of lashing out or being extremely manic. I am also getting vivid nightmares that have been happening almost every night at three am. Do I just push through it or do I contact my doctor for new medication?
