I'm currently on 100mg lamictal once daily for Bipolar Manic Depression. I have been on this same dose for almost 6yrs & I dont feel I live productive life. Most days I sit on couch depressed & crying bcause I see all the housework that needs to b done but mentally I cannot physically get up & do it which upsets me even more... I am considering askin my Dr to change me to Effexor. Does anyone have opinion or similiar situation they could offer me some insight?
