> I'm having great response to lamictal. Now up to 100mg after 4 weeks and its the first med in a long time to lift me out of the deep black despair of a mixed states bipolar depression. No flatness at all. It's added a smooth sparkle that peaks at the 3 hour mark, at which time I take the next half of my dose.
> I'm very grateful to Max for his input. Even though Lamictal is tackling the depression, it does nothing for anxiety. I was planning to discontinue my lithium and tapered way down, but have reconsidered. BTW, I'm taking Neurontin as well, although tapering off it since I wasn't noticing much of an effect one way or the other. One major help to me has been taking tryptophan (yes, the stuff of scares a few years ago). I'll be posting a separate thread on this eventually, but I do believe it's turning out to be a miracle in many ways for me.

Hi Barbara,

What antidepressant are you taking along with the mood stabilizers? I'm just wondering if you would try to slowly lower you a/d, it just might help with the lingering anxiety your still having. I'm so glad the lamictal is working for you. The lamictal has been a very good a/d for me. I can't believe how low of the dose I got down to on the paxil. Only on this with the lamictal now. Things just keep getting better with this drug!!!
