Lamictal / Lamotrigine treatment

I have recently undergone an array of tests, SPECT being one of those. The results of the SPECT showed that I have a small cluster of over-active neurons in the left parietal lobe. This is apparently a prime indicator for mood disorder, and in my case I have been diagnosed as Bi Polar II and have been prescribed an anti-epileptic named Lamcital.

For those here that have been prescribed this drug for either Bi Polar or DP, have you noticed any alarming side effects? Most notably a drop in your ability to concentrate, memory related problems or any emotional flattening or dulling?

Hey Nem, how goes it? Thought you weren't interested in medicating your symptoms for now. Change your mind?
Hey Nem,

OK, so you've decided to try lamotrigine. Are you taking an SSRI as well? Let us know how it goes. Sending luck your way. Hope you feel better soon.
Nem, please keep updating us. Glad to hear you're off to a good start.
Nem, is it still going well? Update please :D
