billbarnes Posted July 27, 2011 Share Posted July 27, 2011 My 16 year old has been on Lamictal for 3 weeks. He is getting ready to start the 4th week. So far, no side effects which is great. Pdoc wants to stop at 50MG lamictal which seems really low. Is that a high enough dosage to really work? Anyone have good experience with sustained 50MG? He is also on 15MG of Prozac. Been seeing pdoc for 6 months so he knows him well. Diagnosis isn't 100%, b/c doesn't fit any "box" tightly enough, but suspect BP II with ultradian cycling (up to 6 times / day) with no mania, but heavy depression. Seems like most people are on 100MG+. Maybe it is b/c my son is only 16. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
