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?

I'm presently on 200 mgs Lamictal, and I'm not absolutely certain at this point, but I think I may be starting to feel a bit of an improvement with it (my mood/energy levels seem to be improving, and the world feels slightly more 3-D).

If this keeps up, I may have my doctor take me all the way up to the maximum dosage (about 500 mgs, I think) over time and see what happens. (Barring side effects.)
