I've been on lamotrigine for about a month and I am literally allwayyysss drowsy, I've been taking it in the mornings. Has anyone else experienced this level of lethargy?

      Yes, definitely... I couldn't work or drive on lamatrogine. I only lasted about 2 weeks on it. Was one of the worse medications I've been put on...
