    I tapered off of lamotrigine and did not experience any withdrawal. I went from 200 twice a day, to 200 in the AM and 100mg in the PM for a week, then 200mg in the AM for a week, then 100mg in the AM for a week, and then done. Maybe I was just lucky.

      Of course, I was off meds for a month and a half and then went into a depression and am restarting Lamotrigine now...frustrated that I have to start at 25mg again.

    I accidentally half dosed myself a month or so ago and it knocked me on my ass for a week before the dose got corrected in my body. A lot of it was emotional, very intense moods and big fast mood swings. I was tired and couldn’t focus at all. I was also so irritable, I just stayed away from people. Also headaches.

    Yeah, I'm supposed to be getting off of Topamax, but I remember trying to get off of Lamictal once. It wasn't pleasant, but it's probably because I have a delicate balance with Topamax.
