Hi! I'm new to this thread (and relatively new to PB). I saw that you were all talking about Lamictal and I had to put in my 2c!
I was diagnosed with cyclothymia last fall and have been taking 200mgs of Lamictal since the end of January. It has helped tremendously so far, esp with the depressed side, and no side effects to speak of. I just started 25mg Seroquel to catch the hypomania before it starts this spring, but I think to treat bipolar depression (and maybe even unipolar?), Lamictal is a great choice.
Thanks for your input, Dr. Goldberg.
Also, Geoff, the generic name for Lamictal is lamotrigine. Maybe you can find it under that? Good luck!
