I guess that might be the next step.

> How long have you been on Lamictal now?

For at least 6 years.

> I know you had a good response to it when you started, but could it be that's turned on you now?

I don't think so. Actually, I tried lowering the dosage last week. I felt considerably worse, so raised it back up and added another 50mg.

> And do you think the nortriptyline could be part of the problem?

I doubt it, but it won't hurt to keep that thought as a possibility.

> Maybe adding something that hits 5HT would help balance things?

Many people respond well to Wellbutrin + SRI. I will certainly consider it.

> Or, what was your reaction to Provigil, again?

I didn't like that drug. It made my depression horribly worse, and I couldn't justify continuing the trial beyond two weeks.

> Whatever happens, Scott, you're a good man, and I hope things turn around very soon for you. Your hopeful nature is inspiring.

Thanks. I appreciate the warm sentiments.

(I'm still secretly hoping that this stuff will start working again by this time next week. Don't tell anyone).
