In brief: Lamictal

It is important to discuss with your physician your recent experience with efficacy involving the lamictal.
While your experience may suggest a need for dose adjustment (lamictal levels can be affected by hormonal status, other medications, change in generic manufacturer etc), many times changes in the severity of one's condition related to psychosocial stress is a major factor.
