9yo DS has been diagnosed with cyclothymia (mild bipolar) and spends most of the time in the depressed end of the spectrum. He is very irritable, easily angered, anxious, has pulled all of his eyelashes out, scratches up his arms, is now pulling his hair out one by one. Doc wants to try Lamictal. Wondering if anyone out there has experience with it personally or for your kiddos? He is going to start him at about 12.5mg then titrate up from there until he reaches theraputic level. What kind of side effects have you experienced/noticed?
