lamictal and sleep

Does anyone who takes Lamictal have problems sleeping???  I dream all night long and never feel well rested.  I am constantly tired becasue of it.  i can dream wake up then immediately fall back into the dream I was having.  I am tired of looking like death because I have dark circles under my eyes.  Any thoughts on the matter?

  Yes I had that problem when I was on Lamictal (and some other mood stabilizers as well). I know since I had trouble falling asleep in addition to sleep disruption I was prescribed the sleep aide Rozerem which is non addictive and actually adjusts the sleep cycle like melatonin but I don't know if it would be prescribed for sleep disruption but you could ask your psychiatrist.
