lamotrigine - anyone taking this for anxiety
sunflower1943 posted:
Hi - my psych dr recommended a small dose - have been on it 2 weeks - I do feel calmer - only take 25 mg - anyone else take this med? Only bad side effect to watch for is a rash - so far no rash.

I'm not sure if they have to titrate up or not - anyone take this and does it help - they use it for a mood stabilizer - in my case as I'm a nervous person and am up and down every day - hopefully this will work.

Just checking to see if anyone have tried this. Thank you.

I'm sure you'll hear from some people who are taking this medication and they will tell you about their experiences with it. You're right; if a rash appears you must call your doctor immediately.
