Thanks for your kind wishes, Tony. My pdoc also did not want to prescribe Lamictal for me. He had a patient who went up too fast, got the rash and wound up in intensive care for a week, so I can understand his hesitancy. Sure hope my positive response continues to be on his successes list. With any new drug the hype has to be separated out from the results (look at Lexapro - I'm not seeing much to recommend it). From what I'm seeing on this board, people with bipolar depression seem to fare the best on Lamictal. Some others have a terrible time. I did very poorly on Paxil and Effexor, but I guess that's just another indication of being an undiagnosed bipolar for whom no AD works. Are you really a sailor? - Barbara

> Good deal for you. Remoron seems to make many people lives a nightmare re: of mdd or bpd. I fint that I can do well without , but when dep hits i go onto effexop immed. I usually take a small amount of an ssri for panic, as well as vaium.
> Lamicatal. It is just amazing how many other's ar eusing it. ^months ago my doc did not want to write for this due to a rash in some ppl. Now he says he is writing it often and has seen good efficacy in the lit and in his practise. I hope the "potio" works for you. bb ~Tony
