Hi Terry and welcome to the board! I'm new to all this and have only been on Lamictal for a week. Every person I've talked to on here who has been on Lamictal long term reports very good things about it, I'm keeping my fingers crossed too!

All good here.  I was getting bad enough depressions to land me in the hospital.  I have been stable since getting up to the 100 mg dose.  Pretty cool.  I can actually take care of my toddler son now!

happy bill

  Just wanted to say welcome, hope to hear more from you and i hope the lamictal works for you. Plus you have to give yourself a bit of time when working with these meds. Getting back to "normal" has taken many of us a long time. I myself am still trying to get back to normal, but in the mean time i am enjoying the peace i have.
   ANyway good to meet you and hope to hear more from you. This is a nice board here with a lot of great, friendly,  knowageable and compastionate people here.  However i am one of the worst spellers so you will have to bear with me on that issue. LOL LOL LOL

Welcome, Terry. I hope the Lamictal works for you. It's really made a huge difference in my life. I've been on it for years now.

I have a 4-year old daughter. How old is your son?
