    I take it for bipolar and eppilepsy. My current dose is 300mg a day; 150mg in the morning and 150 at nite. It is a great mood stablizer and goes well with my prozac and rexulti.

    I’m on 300mg. I take it for my Epilepsy because it didn’t work as a mood stabilizer for me.

    anywhere between 100-200mg works for me but i think 150mg for me is best. i got it prescribed as a mood stabilizer but it works better as an antiepileptic for me so thats why ive stayed on it for a long time. it takes a couple of weeks after upping the dose to ur optimal/highest dose for it to rly work. personally tho it gives me migraines whenever the dose has been upped too fast so idk

    I'm on 300mg, and it still doesn't work for me. But I metabolize meds very differently than most people

    150 was when it really was effective. i increased to 300 but i don’t really know if it’s made a difference. i think i’m on too many to jnow

    I’m on 250 for epilepsy. I’ve tried to keep my dosage low bc I don’t like the insomnia side effect, but this is as low as I can get. Any lower and I get break through seizures. I’ve gone as high as 300.

    I was on 200mg when I started to notice it working for mood stabilizer.

  • Or


    Started working as a mood stabilizer at 150mg, it’s been upped to 300 since then
