> Hav you done lithium and lamictal at the same time? Lamictal had me absolutely cured for about a month and then only major side effects as i tried to chase a dose that still worked. I felt best at 25mg as many people here have. It may be worth a trial I guess. Maybe the lithium will stabilize the lamictal. Anyone's guess.
No, I could never tolerate Lamictal. It made me too agitated and I couldn't sleep. But if you had a partial response to Lamictal, I would definitely try adding it to the lithium. It can't hurt, and will probably help that blah, tired feeling. Have you mentioned it to your pdoc? FWIW, I think Li is a great med used in combination with other mood stabilizers or AD's.
