I take lamotrigine 600mg daily. Since starting the medication I am more depressed, but I am not sure I can blame it all on the medication. There were a lot of other things going on in my life. Either way, I would not stop taking my lamotrigine.

Yes! I am on 700 mg daily! I do have treatment resistant depression and bipolar 1. But I feel like the depression is helped by the Lamotrigine but man I’m always tired.

Ivecbeen on Lamotigine for a long time and never felt depressed.

When I first started on the AED I did feel tired a lot. Today my body has adapted to it and I don’t get tied .
