    Anyone try Lamictal for Anxiety/Depression?

    I am now on day 5 of 25 mgs of Lamictal. I formerly took Prozac for many years, recently tried Zoloft for three weeks (couldn't stand the increased anxiety), and now the doc wants me to try just the Lamictal. It is a anti-seizure drug that has been approved for mood stabilization. Has anyone had any sucess with this drug taken alone, or in conjunction with an antidepressant? So far, it makes me very sleepy, somewhat nauseous, and a little more anxious, not much appetite. I promised the doctor I would try it for two weeks. I see no difference in my anxiety/depression so far. I also take Xanax for the anxiety. Any positive input would be great!!
