You should be aware that the clinical trials found no efficacy at 40mg, and that the target dose at 60mg is quite an important thing for Lilly to point out to docs.

I'm just saying this because if your energy isn't what it use to be before your depression, and you're just feeling relieved from some overwhelming sense of hopelessness yet nothing more, then it's important to know there's hope at the 60mg and higher doses, Lamictal or not.

I tried Lamictal to augment my Zoloft, but I got one of the (non-lethal) rashes and went off it. I also switched to Lexapro, and am at 20mg. I've never tried Cymbalta, but have tried all the AD's by this point sold in this country, so it seems to be the next option. I'm giving Lexapro one more month at 20mg (or more, if my doc feels like doubling it). Then it's Cymbalta.

I've also got some Selegiline I'm not telling my doc about on its way in the mail, and will be taking that on the side at 10mg along with DLPA supplement or whatever it's called at 1500mg/day.

I have soc. anx. disorder, depression, and ADD. My biggest concern is lack of drive/energy/motivation/focus and procrastionation, which I attribute to the depression as it worsens my ADD. I've never tried Straterra, but am on Adderall 20mg 3x/day. I might be going back to Desoxyn down the road.
