Lamictal is the brand name of lamotrigine manufactured by GSK. It costs RM 50 per blister pack and one dose (tablet) of Lamictal is RM 5.
This is the other medication I’m on now – it’s a mood stabilizer for bipolar people and it not just treats the manic phases but the depressive episodes.
I’m only taking 50 mg at 6 am and another 50 mg of lamotrigine at 6 pm (twice a day) so I’m not using it to control my mania (which I like) but my depressive episodes.
I’m adding this to my existing prescriptions [sixthseal.com] with the following changes:
Remeron 60 mg at night to sleep
Risperdal divided into two doses of 2 mg each at 6 am and 6 pm for better concentrations
Rivotril 6 mg for maintenance
