The only zombie effect I felt was when I first started the lamictal and was still at 40 mgs of Celexa. I say Zombie because I felt so devoid of any emotion. I wasn't necessarily tired.

My emotions came back as the Celexa went down and the lamic went up. Also, I think for someone with depression or bpII, feeling stable and not depressed feels like you are emotionless. I feel great now.

I hope that helps,
