Hi Cam,
I was part of the study you mentioned and agree with your assessment- although UCSD was delighted with their results and I'm sure we'll see some 'massaging' of the data- particularly placebo results (Maybe I'm cynical). I was in the rapid-cycling group for bp1 and lamictal as a monotherapy. Well you go with the one's paying the bills, but I agree a depakote (a very depressing med but awesome anti-manic for me) lamictal study would be a great study to see- especially for rapid cyclers. Actually I was on that particular combo, but I had to be monitored so much with biweekly blood test and very slow titration of lamictal- it takes very experienced pdocs to do it and extremely motivated patients. BTW, I had a good response, less cycling (but then I got pregnant) so I would recommend it to others. Take care, judy
