Re: want to get off Lamictal

You can experience seizures with abruptly stopping Lamictal. I myself have weaned off of Lamictal. Start by lowering the dose. I know Lamictal has a gradual titration to get to 100 mg. I forger the MG dosage for each titration week but Start from 100 and go to 50 mg for a week then cut the 50 mg in half and so on for a week each. I'm on Celexa only because I can not stop even if I taper off as directed. I get "brain zaps" and it is sooo debilitating. Good luck to you!
