Hi Bekka -
Lamictal has made me much less reactive - I can approach situations calmly and sanely that would leave me screaming in frustration before. There's no real 'felt' effect - it's subtle. Much less obsessing, but not apathy. A little more focus, more clarity. Even my dreams are clearer - they used to run around in obsessive circles, but now they actually occasionally make sense to me. Also, once you get past the long titration and find you optimal dose, the side effect profile is extremely benign.
