> > Many people who have atypical depression have an underlying mood disorder. This is what happen in my case. I was on a combo of a low dose ssri with a tricyclic. Lamictal was added about a year ago. Having great results. Up to 200mg and have been able to lower the AD's. Atypical depression responds more to AD's that target numerous neurotransmittors. The reason your AD's poop out may be that a mood stablizer is needed. This is very common with bipolar's to trial many AD's without much success.

Just want you to know that I ALWAYS read your posts. Thanks for your expert knowledge. You have been very helpful to everyone!!

How much lamictal are you on now? I hope I sail through the change of season coming up. March has always been a difficult month for me. This is when the anxiety sets in with mixed states. I have NO side effects with lamictal. See my pdoc early feb. I'm ready to go up to 300mg.
