Opinions only; I just started taking it 2 days ago for seizures and anxiety paranoia. Do I feel less anxious already because someone finally listened to me or because it’s actually working because I started on the full dose?

    Lamotrigine is known to work really well but please be careful. Your doctor should have set you up to tier up to the full dose because starting at the full dose right off the bat is proven to have more dangerous side effects.

      I’ve heard that. My symptoms were/severe right now so we started on a split but full dose.

    It took me at least a week or two to see improvements with it

    honestly, it may be a bit of both. i definitely felt less anxious the first night i took mine! but it's always a relief to have someone listen to you about your health concerns. i hope it continues to provide you with stress relief (and works for your seizures as well)!

    i use lamotrigine for seizures and i can’t say that it made my pre-existing anxiety any better

    I've been on Lamotrigine since I've started having seizures and my anxiety hasn't gone down but my recommendation would be possibly find something to distract yourself with. Possibly a hobby of yours whether it be playing an instrument, singing, playing with animals or whatever the like. Something that can possibly calm down your nerves. I have a house cat that kinda acts like a service cat so she helps when I feel nervous or when I have a seizure.

    I take it for Borderline Personality Disorder. In my experience I think it worked well for awhile but then I'd need to increase more, then after awhile increase more. Im at max dosage now, my doctor said I should transfer to Latuda but thats a 600 a month med so I cant do that 😬
