User avatar Hello GiulioGiammarco,

Dosing of lamictal depends on the other medications being used also. A typical dosing would be 100 or 200mg per day for adults. However, there is significant variability in medication dosing from person to person so please do not use this as a dose recommendation. Instead, the person taking this medicine should talk with the prescribing doctor about a proper person.

Best wishes.
