I have a psychotic mood disorder. I took 15 Abilify and 200 lamictal. The lamictal does have a "calming" effect--things are less intense, which kinda sucks, but is probably good when you're dealing with psychosis and agitation and depression--but its relatively mild. When I quit it (for no particular reason), my agitation increased and my anxiety went up a bit, but my thinking was more lucid and faster. This held true even after I went back up to 30 abilify.

So, I don't know what to tell you. The antidepressant effect was most intense at 100; 200 was more like mild mood elevation and some calming action. I don't remember any effects at 50, but we take entirely different meds and have entirely different brain and problems.

It is an anticonvulsant, so I'd expect a degree of...calming, I guess is a good word. Its not a stimulant or an antidepressant; it usually doesn't trigger mania or anything.

Maybe the Ritalin+Klonopin combo is part of the issue? I'm not second guessing your doc, just saying when I took adderall+klonopin, my moods were unstable.
