Should I take lamictal in the morning or at night? I started at 25mg and am now on 50mg working my way up to at least 100mg to treat bipolar II. I’ve noticed lately that I feel tired/ run down almost all day. By like 10-11am I’m already ready to leave work and can’t get motivated to do complicated tasks. I also feel like my head is sort of empty(?). My sleep hasn’t changed so my thought is it has to be the medication.

    I'm taking 150mg 2x daily for my epilepsy. I have had the same issues, and started taking vitamin b6 once a day and have noticed a tremendous difference! It's helped with my motivation and ability to stay awake and push through those low times. I suggest staying in touch with your doctor and letting them know. Maybe it's not the right medication for you. Hope this helps!

    I take 250mg for epilepsy. I'm suppose to take it twice a day but when I do I have bad nightmares so I take mine once and I prefer taking it in the evening around dinner time or after dinner. I don't have nightmares with just once and I'm not groggy during the day.

    I used to take it at night too because I felt like it dulled me if I took it in the morning
