What are your Lamical side effects? On it and discontinuing it.


Do you notice "almost" immediate effects when you first start Lamictal? (more like in the first few days)


Do those effects make you happy?


When I started taking it, I actually thought to myself "Wow, I'm happy" :confused::confused::confused: So I started calling it "the happy pill" :rolleyes::rolleyes:

I dunno.. your guess is as good as mine.

Do you notice "almost" immediate effects when you first start Lamictal? (more like in the first few days).I was just about to ask this...I literally started yesterday. Is it possible to feel the effects this soon, or am I just having an unusually good day?

hehe That's what I thought, too.. It's been 2 years now. Though for me....it's hard to come off of if you do it too fast. Must titrate down. You'll get some fierce headaches. But other than that, it works for me
