I'm BPII, ultra-rapid / ultraradian cycling.
Lamictal 100 mg (very low dose) works for me without any side effects.
I haven't had a mood swing since starting this dose (34 days ago). I have never been stable before - not even as a kid.
Now I'm a stay-at-home momma! I couldn't take care of my son before. He is almost 3 and had lived with my parents since he was about 6 months old. I always wanted to do this, but I couldn't because of the BP.
I can't explain how happy I am. It's very strange to feel this way outside of hypomania. It's good - even better than hypomania, because I know it will last.
There is hope out there.
