I'm only up to 75 mg of Lamictal and it's making me a little bit manic.  Anyone had this happen?  Does it get better with a higher dose or worse.  Any suggestions on how to battle the irritability?

I doubt it is the medication. At 75 mg, it is unlikely it is doing anything at all. I'd assume it is a symptom you would expereience whether or not you were on meds.

How long until you go up to the next higher dose?

I just started with a 25mg dose for a week then up to 50mgs after that. My energy has
greatly increased and I'm not depressed anymore but I don't feel hyper. I'm also on 15mgs.
of Abilify and 20mgs. Celexa so I don't know which drug pulled me out of the was
either the Abilify of Lamictal as I started taking them at the same time a week ago. Or perhaps
the combo of both.

I would suggest you talk to your pdoc about the mania so he can adjust your meds.

Good luck!!!

Thanks you so much for your answers. I feel better now. It has helped me so much with the depression that I didn't want to have to stop taking it. Thanks again.
