J,
I really enjoyed your post. I added gabapentin to help with the raciness and insomnia with Celexa. I find it a rather "weak" drug, however. I am still racy and irritable, but just feel more sleepy during the day.

I also take Trileptal (cleaner form of Tegretol) for mood stabilization. It works great, but I have terrible dry skin, itching, painful scalp (folliculitis), and photosensitivity that makes me stay inside until the sun goes down. So, I can't go up anymore on that one, unfortunately...

So, I was hoping that the Lamictal could take the place of both Trileptal and Celexa. How is that for optimism??? But I am so sensitive to meds, I often can't get to a therapuetic dose. So perhaps I won't be able to get the benefits of lamictal. Did I mention I get hypomanic on 4 mgs of Celexa!

If you don't mind me asking, do you find Lamictal helpful for anger and irritability? Or just S.I.?

Again, thanks for your informative post.
Chloe
