Hi Roo.

I have yet to hear of someone who cannot avoid the rash-reaction by titrating Lamictal slowly in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations.

Lamictal has produced a mild antidepressant effect for me that has been stable at 300mg/day. For many people, it is a very "clean" drug as it tends not to produce any side effects. You might notice a bit of trouble with memory early on, but it is not nearly as disruptive to cognition as the other anticonvulsant mood-stabilizers. I see that it is now used to treat both bipolar and unipolar depression. I think Lamictal is well worthwhile to explore fully. The average effective dosage seems to be around 200mg, with a range of between 100mg - 300mg.

Good luck.
