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

      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.

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

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

      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.
