is anyone else super tired from lamictal? i haven’t worked up to a therapeutic dose yet so the meds probably aren’t the reason. but once i went from 25 to 50 i stared sleeping ALL day, like 12-16 hours every night. It’s also been really hard to wake up lately

    I am on lamictal and I am tired all the time. I also have insomnia so I fight sleep and its literally getting to me. I dont know how much more I can take. I can hardly function. Im on 150mg once a day.

      i also have pretty severe insomnia and nothing really helps. any meds i’ve tried either just don’t work or make me sleep for way too long

    Are you taking it in the morning? It never really made me sleepy and I just got up to 100 mg which made my insomnia worse so I had to move it to the morning. But before that, my psychiatrist had me taking it at night to see if it would help me sleep at night

      i take it in the morning unless i forget until later. most meds make my insomnia worse for whatever reason so i take everything in the am

    I take 400 mg of lamictal (I know) and I would feel tired about a month after each increase and then it would even out. One thing that helped me was drinking a lot of water.
