Lamictal advice

Hi all

So I started on Lamictal a couple of weeks ago and after a lot of back pain initially this seems to have eased off at last (until the next increase no doubt).

The party season starts next week and I have some work parties etc. My problem is that I normally take my tablet at bedtime but obviously I'll be out at this time. I will be having a few drinks (although kerbing it) but I'm a bit stuck on what to do about taking my normal dose. I'm thinking of moving the time I take the tablets to an hour earlier every day so that by the time I go out I'll be taking my daily dose at around 4pm, but then I'm worried I'm be too sleepy to go out.

Does anyone have any experience or tips?

Many thanks

Thought I'd post so you know people aren't ignoring you. I have no experience with Lamictal at all though I m afraid. Could you perhaps consult your doctor?

No its fine, I know it's a funny one and obviously none of you are doctors 😁

I guess I'm going to have to see what she says.

Thank you.
