Hi. I have struggled with MDD for 12 yrs. Psychiatrist just added lamotrigine... to 225 mg of venlafaxine and 300 mg of Wellbutrin. He says lamotrigine will slowly increase to 150mg. Just looking for some feedback... these med changes are so overwhelming for me. Thanks.
I’ve taken lamotrigine two separate times. The first was like taking a placebo - nothing happened. The second time I tried it, I became very calm and stable after hitting the 100mg mark. Very quiet med in my opinion, nothing like antidepressants.
