I saw my pdoc today and she told me to drop the Lamictal down from 150mg to 100mg. The only other med I'm taking is Keppra 250mg 3 times a day for anxiety.

In three weeks if I don't feel better, she wants me to drop the Lamictal completely and then add either Prozac or Cymbalta to the Keppra.

She's a big fan of Keppra for anxiety and I would have to agree it works on anxiety better than Lamictal for me. She also said the only reason she had me try Lamictal was for an antidepressant.

I was surprised at her response to Cymbalta. She said she wasn't to sure about it because meds that usually are well proven have much more positive feedback (psychiatric seminars, etc) before their release, if that makes any sense. She didn't say anything negative but just hasn't seen any overwhelming proven fact it will be superior over other SSRI's, SNRI's.

The good news is, we won't know till we try!

The Lilly rep said that 60mg was the minimum dose and they are just giving 30mg and 60mg samples out, which makes me wonder why they even mention 40mg (20 BID) in the prescribing info. Oh well.

All that being said, I won't add anything for a few weeks which should be enough time to get feedback from you and others at theraputic doses, so keep me posted.
