Hi again Refractory.

Getting little benefit from ADs, or actually getting worse on them as you did, hints at a bipolar condition rather than a pure depression. Based on what you've said, Lamictal took a giant leap into first place as the next trial for you, in my mind. It sounds like treating your symptoms with mood stabilizers makes a lot of sense. Lamictal is a very friendly one, and is gaining notice as having respectable antidepressant qualities. I just get real suspect that we're barking up the wrong tree when several ADs don't work at therapeutic doses/times. The reasons to try a mood stabilizer strategy sound compelling to me, based on your comments and your multiple failures on ADs with valid trials. And I think you should look into Lamictal as a first choice. Check out Dr Bobs Pharmacology 'tips' section for more info on Lamictal. Also good research on it at Depression Central. Links will take you there, once you've done a search on Lamictal in the 'tips' section. Check it out. I think you'll like what you read.
