ssri to Lamictal?

Posted by chloe on May 22, 2001, at 18:53:02

Can lamictal be used as an AD for unipolar depression?

I don't think I am bipolar, but when I go on an SSRI, like prozac, zoloft, and now celexa, I get so revved up and pressured, irritable and at times "high", until the med poops out. I have also been on Wellbutrin and Serzone with no success.

I get alot of relief from anger and mood swings with the mood stabilizers. But they never seem to address my depression. But when I add an AD I tend to get the hypomania thing.

Does anyone know how Lamictal works as an AD? Does it work on Seratonin, or some other pathway? Any info would be appreciated. I really hate the edgy, rushed feeling I always have on these AD. But I do something to keep the negative thoughts away.
