Been on lamictal Skx weeks started fifty mg now on hundred mg it gives me energy Mt appetite has been better I've got cyclothymia and traits of bpd also depression and gad.
I've tried every anti psychotic queriapine helped for ages especially with sleep but going on two hundred mg stopped knocking memoir and had panic attacks in morning ability made me feel like I was doing rispwridome gave me hallucinations and olamzapine helps slightly but even five mg makes me feel shit any recommendations.

Before I have tried depakote four hundred mg made me really fat.

Also is 100mg of lamictal a good dose should I ask to go to 150 or 200 I get no side effects except it someti!es makes me euphoric

Hi and welcome, Hezman.....

If I read your post correctly, you're taking 100mg Lamictal now?

The thing about Lamictal is finding your sweet spot. Most docs usually will continue the titration up to 200mgs.

Why did your doc Rx Lamictal for you? Depression? It can be activating for some folks until they reach the target dose.

It's an excellent mood stabilizer for many people.
