    After trying several medications that either didn't work or resulted in negative side-effects, lamotrigine has been working for me. The only reason I gave only 4 stars is because I have been at 200mg for less than a month and before I was at 100mg BUT I have noticed a difference with the increased dose and never a side-effect.

    After 12 years of misdiagnosed bipolar depression and heavy side effects from fluoxetine and citalopram my new psychiatrist cured me in 6 weeks with lamotrigine.

    I have taken this drug since 2009; I was lucky that the first drug I tried for my mental illness has been so effective. I take 300 mg once a day.

    I take Lamotrigine once daily at 200 MG Tabs. I have been taking the medication for about a year now along with ocarbazepine 600mg. (Oxcarbazepine: one tablet by mouth three times a day.) Only issue is I am up more than 15 hours a day. Ask your Dr. about my regime. It has been pretty effective.
