> Actually, I LOVE Lamictal. I have had virtually no side effects from it. That is a rarity for me, I usually get them all :) The only thing is that it is somewhat activating for me and I need a sleep med at night to get me to sleep. But I had sleep problems anyway so it works out fine. I think it is the best mood stabilizer of them all (and I have tried them all). It does keep my moods nice and stable. I add the Zoloft for help with my OCD and anxiety. It has a nice blunting effect for me and allows stuff to roll of my shoulders alot easier. Makes it much each easier to "cope" with lifes stressors. As far as the Zoloft and sex drive, it does affect it for me too. The lower the dose the better though. For me anyways.

I will ask for Lamictal if I a mood stabilizer will be suggested. I don't know if I'm getting hpyo on Zoloft but I think so. Could you describe what kind of effect has Lamictal on you ? I'm not sure I'm bipolar but meds like SSRI tends to make me agitated and restless. But I don't experience mania or hypomania without meds, so, I'm in a situation in which I'm not sure if mood stabilizer are worth. Thanks for the inputs !
