P doc just increased my lamotrigine from 50 to 100 .I seem to be more anxious, faster heartbeat. The increase only happened 3 days ago. Could this just be an adjustent period. Taking it as a mood stabilizer along with low dose remeron. I must say that I have been a somewhat better than i was before, but no real magic yet. Whenever I report anything to him, as long as it is not a rash, he just says, "don't worry, you'lol get used to it".

yep. hi and welcome. it is slow to start is lamictal. the rash is usually at the start and can be dangerous. you can get ya bloods checked for lamictal levels as well. lamictal, from my experience with it seems to prefer other meds around it. give it some time, with any luck you will slowly be feelin' more better.

Hi Joep229,

Welcome to the forum :-)!

Sometimes you body take time to get adjusted. Be sure to monitor it and take note of any changes.

I hope the adjustment will work for you.
