How long can you be off of lamictal before having to retitrate from the beginning?

Recommended Posts

My pdoc and I discussed possibly going off this at our next appointment now that I've gotten my depakote and lithium levels in range.  She thinks those two alone would be robust enough and that the lamictal was contributing to a low level agitation I have pretty much constantly.  At any rate, lamictal has been a steady part of my cocktail for nearly 3 years now, and to be honest, I'm a little apprehensive about stopping it.  Which leads me to my question, in case I chicken out after stopping the med, how much time do I have to take the med again before I have to start all over with the titration?

Any insight is appreciated.
