> i'm on 400mg, when i first started this, it dulled me out, now if i don't take 400mg in morning, its diffcult with depression. Max dose of fluoxetine was working but now have mood stablized and feel activated and normal, i have to take lamictal. I don't really like to so, because prozac has good morning antidepressant effect, and lamictal kinda blunts it out, but it also treats the depression, just not in the same way.

> I really want to go off lamictaal or reduce dosage, i took 200mg the other day, with fluoxetine in morning, i could tell the fluoxetine effect, but got irrtible, or just felt imbalanced and took the full dose. Mood stablizer for depression, but sometimes mood stablizer blunts the full effect of antidepressant.

Are you taking the generic or brand name Lamictal? For me, the generic has more of a stabilizing effect but doesn't help much with depression. The brand name stuff is activating for me but creates some hyppmanic/compulsive symptoms. Almost like they are separate drugs.
