I've done a cursory search on Google but it seems like all the results vary regarding what the exact appetite change in Lamictal is (increase, neutral, decrease, etc.)

I feel like Lamictal might just be starting to work for me within the past few days after being on it for about a month, and I've also noticed that I really can't stop eating and I'm really hungry no matter what I eat or the amount... this is unusual for me; I only have it when I'm on a medicine that causes it. I experienced the same thing on risperidone about a year and a half ago and gained quite a bit of weight that I still haven't lost; I really can't afford to gain any weight so I'm just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience on this medicine? It's the only medicine I've added within the past few months and it's been gradually increased so that's why I'm just wondering about it...

Lamictal has been weight neutral for me, although I've noticed a decrease in my appetite as I've titrated downward. Could be my med combo, though.

I only experienced that when I first started taking risperidone. Lamictal seems neutral as far as apetite for me goes. Still trying to lose the risperidone weight, too.

You say it is starting to work; one of the possible symptoms of depression is lack of appetite so it might be coming back if you have a depression that is lifting.
