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?

Hi Nem,

I'm on the same boat that you are on. Just started the stuff 3 weeks ago and immediately noticed improvement, primarily in my mood and anxiety levels. So far, no improvement with my DR, but I'm still in the early stages, yet, still at 50 mg/day.
