tek Posted October 22, 2007 Share Posted October 22, 2007 I've asked my pdoc the same question and she always gives me the same answer...the same thing we all know about Lamictal...that it is a "strange drug" and that there's not really any set dose increase schedule once you get to the initial theraputic dose (150 for me). I thought I was feeling better after 2 weeks on Lamictal, but that only last about a week so my pdoc guessed that I was activated for some reason but it stopped, so I'm back to poop-land. By poop-land, I mean I'm not suicidal but I can still see the edge from where I'm standing. I'm socially withdrawn, unmotivated, not getting a whole lot of satisfaction or pleasure from doing things, generally disinterested, irritable, etc. You get the idea. It seems I never get better from "here"...even on drugs in the past. I get just above suicidal, then stuck in this state of blah. That goes on for months until I can't take how shitty I feel and then back down into the black pit. I'd really like to avoid that this time, so of course I want to know how long one needs to wait on a particular dose of Lamictal before it's time to try an increase? I WILL say, however, that my moods are more stable. That's a plus, but I want some interest and pleasure out of life- or what's the fucking point? Ideas? Feedback? Whatever? Thanks!
