Does anyone split their Lamictal dose into morning & night?

Just curious, I'm wondering if it would help me adjust to increased dosage by taking 50mg at night.

At 300 mg a day and above (the starting dose for seizures is usually 1200 mg/day or 600 mg twice a day) the manufacturer's informations requires a  split dose. I found taking 300 mg/day needed to be split into 2 doses to be comfortable and my neurologist had concerns about maintaining steady state. After all Lamictal does not have a half-life that supports once a day dosing.
