> Racer's idea is an interesting one. Lamictal clears the body pretty quick. Divide your doses into 50mg t.i.d. If you react REALLY badly to it, you can simply skip the next two doses and return to 50mg b.i.d.

I never thought of taking it tid. At the moment, I take 75 mg in the a.m. and 50 mg in the p.m. I already take Nardil tid, so rearranging the Lamictal schedule would be pretty easy. Although I take the last Nardil at about 10:00 p.m. Would taking Lamictal that late disrupt sleep? Or I could try 75 bid as you do.
> Have you tried Parnate, Marplan, or Effexor? Those are the drugs one would naturally ask about given your partial response to Nardil.

I haven't tried any of these. Old pdoc and I discussed Parnate, but at the time it was not a good idea to go through the stuff associated with washing out Nardil and switching to Parnate. It still feels risky, since I'm hittin major crunch time with a very important deadline (that which shall not be named, lol). I'd hate to lose any more ground on that. But then, if I had a good response, I might be zooming away on it in no time. Ack! What to do, what to do? Marplan and Effexor are worth looking into, too. I'm looking forward to having a fresh set of eyes (and ears and brain, etc) to assess and treat me.

I'll check out Lyrica as well. I don't know much at all about that med.
