> I have ocd/depression as well, all those meds you mention helped me limitedly until my doctor added lamictal. It helped so much with my depression and helped the other meds to start working (200mg of Zoloft), 90mg Buspar, Remeron, Zyprexa.
> Let me know if you have any questions, lamictal changed my life after 8 years of trying different meds.
mogger, That's great news about Lamictal. My doctor would be thrilled if I told him I'd be willing to give it a try. If you don't mind, can you tell me more about your experience with Lamictal. Specifically, I'd like to hear what impact, if any, it has had on your OCD. Unfortunately, because of my concern over hair loss, I'm not willing to augment it with an SSRI, but monotherapy with Lamictal still sounds promising. Thanks in advance.
