Insomnia with Lamictal and does it go away?

I’m on 200mg of Lamictal x 2 (morning/night), I’m also on 100mg topamax. Lamictal has helped me a lot but I will say I can stay up all night if I don’t force myself to go to bed. When I got on Lamictal I definitely had issues sleeping: topamax has helped me but I still struggle with sleep issues. I know this sounds cheesy but this sleep meditation video has helped me a lot :

slowing down your brain is great. also doing a quick exercise , 20 pushups, 20 jumping jacks, 20 squats, 1 min plank. Try to go to bed earlier, take your meds earlier in the day or night, start your bed time regimen by 8(washing face or whatever you do) by 10 you’ll hopefully be able to fall
