lamictal 100mg vs 200mg????

Hey guys I was wondering if someone has taken 100mg but wasn't quite up to par so went to 200mg and felt better?? Just wondering if that boost might make much difference. Please someone reply. Thanks friends!!

I am on Lamictal, and have found that I felt better with each increase. I hope you're titrating up slowly on this med. It has to be increased gradually.

It takes a while to find the right dosage. I think 100 is a little low. I'm sure with the increases you'll feel a lot better. Hang in there, and keep in touch with your p/doc.

I also am on Lamictal and at this time am on 300mg, but as Seaturtle said this happened over a long period of time and a very slow tritrate up. You definitely should not just jump from 100 to 200 this can be very dangerous.
