To Pati..YES, I have had trouble titrating dosage up to as little as 50 mg. each time, within 3 days, I was "wild". I have been on it for 3 months at 25 mg/day and can't stand it anymore. I am feeling that anger and uncontorollable impulses again. and no sleep. I am stopping this tonight and pray that I find a doctor who actually understands the anxiety part and bipolar people need sleep, desperately.

To Pati
I have just quit for the very same reasons but had hallucinations to add to the mix. I was only on it for Epilepsy and have just come off 100mg cold turkey as couldn't take it anymore. I was completely manic and anxious and had complete Insomnia. I have just been prescribed Seroquel to deal with withdrawal and side-effects which is helping. Try to see if they can put something in place before you stop I didn't but should have. Take Care

I have been on Lamictal for only a week,and the mania and anxiety has been off the charts.I rather feel slightly depressed than feeling this. How long will this last?

It has been considered by psyciatrists to have a slight antidepressant effect. It’s not a normal mood stabilizer it does have an up to it.
