I've started augmenting the Parnate with Lamictal. I was on it once before by itself (the Lamictal) but we only went up to 400mg. After I got off, my doctor consulted with someone else who recommended pushing it much higher - up to 800mg if necessary. At that time we didn't. Now that Parnate is working well, we're slowly tapering down the Parnate and up the Lamictal. We'll go up to 600-800mg if necessary. It may be that a balance of Parnate and Lamictal is necessary, or if I'm lucky, I'll be able to go off Parnate and just be on Lamictal eventually.

I'm doing it very slowly as I absolutely don't want to lose the positive effects of Parnate and any gains I've had in my depression.

Something to think about!
