Lamictal's effects

Lamictal is very strange in its effect on me. About an hour after I take it I get a great boost in energy and lowering of depression. This generally lasts till late afternoon and then fades away.

I have read nothing about Lamictal that would explain this, but I know that it's more than just a mood stabilizer. Anyone know what might explain these effects?

> I'm not certain (not sure if anyone is). It blocks sodium channels which inhibits the nmda receptor's glutamate release. I think it also has an afinity for calcium channels as well (probably also effecting the nmda recptor). It increases GABA-A levels also.
> That's about all I know. It is avery energizing meds for me. Hope it works out well for you.
