    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.
