Lamictal 200 mg Tablets
Lamictal® (lamotrigine) is a prescription medication used to treat seizures in people with epilepsy. It is also used as a mood stabilizer to treat bipolar disorder. The drug comes in tablet form and is available in various strengths, including:
- 25 mg Lamictal tablets
- 100 mg Lamictal tablets
- 150 mg Lamictal tablets
- 200 mg Lamictal tablets.
The dose of Lamictal that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- The medical condition being treated
- Your age and weight
- Other medications you may be taking
- Other medical conditions you may have.
Dosing for Lamictal is complicated. Not only will the recommended dose change, depending on other medications you are taking or other medical conditions you have, but Lamictal must be started at a low dose and increased slowly for up to seven weeks, which can be confusing for some people. Make sure your healthcare provider knows about every medication you are taking (especially other seizure or bipolar disorder medications), as well as other medical conditions you have (especially kidney or liver problems).
