This medication is a godsend for me! I also take Geodon and Zoloft, but with the Lamictal added, my motivation is back and I do more things. My agoraphobia is almost gone! I love this medication!

Taking 200mg with lexapro 10mg daily. I feel normal for the first time in many years. I have had some problems with sleepiness but i think it is a fair trade off for the result ive had. No problems or negative saide effects.

Comment:
Lamictal has been effective at dealing w/ my mood. But the blue pills are hard to swallow - the coating disolves quickly and the pill gets stuck at the back of my throat. I have vomited several times just trying to swallow the pills.

Comment:
I tried to self medicate with 100 mg. instead of 200 mg. I noticed I was not mentally doing as well but attributed it to NOT needing to be one medication. I have gone back to 200 mg. which has reduced symptoms for me.
