Lamotrigine might be more of a potentiator of psychotropic drugs than it is a monotherapeutic agent. There is no question in my mind that it can produce robust antidepressant effects. Unfortunately, these improvements last only briefly; with the drug sometimes yielding a partial response thereafter.
