melgcharlie Posted October 4, 2007 Share Posted October 4, 2007 I'm diagnosed with bipolar II... I'm supposed to be taking 200 mg of Lamictal per day. I counted my pills today just to double check that I was on track and hadn't missed any doses (I really believed I had taken it everyday, but I get distracted sometimes and forget what I have/not taken... Ugh). So over the last 10 days, it appears there's 5 pills (100 mg each) that I haven't taken. So, somewhere along the way I've missed 2 1/2 doses. I don't know when I didn't take them. My Psychiatrist told me if I miss two in a row, she has to start me all over again at 25 mg/day. I've felt better on Lamictal than I have in years. I'm so mad at myself for screwing up my medicine. I hate myself. Question... since I don't know when I missed these Lamictal doses (but it probably wasn't 2 days in a row) can I feel safe continuing my regular dose? I'm afraid of the fatal rash. Help!! Advice please, Mary Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
