> Instead, he increased my Lamictal from 75mg to 100mg. I don't believe Lamictal has done anything for me yet... I might as well be taking pez. Does anyone have any guesses for how much of an increase in Lamictal would be necessary for there to be a similar response as an increase of 300mg of Lithium? I know it's probably like comparing apples and oranges, but does anyone want to go out on a limb on this one?

I'm not sure why he wouldn't increase the Lithium somewhat. But you may want to reconsider the Lamictal idea. You can actually go to a very high dose, even 800mg, to get positive effects. So you are taking a pretty low dose right now even though it's your augmenting drug. I would try it at an increased level. As long as you don't get a rash, I haven't experienced much in the way of negative side-effects.
