If you are on the maintainence dose (200 mg or possibly higher) and it is controlling your mania, anxiety, impulsiveness, or concentration, I would stay on it and add an antidepressant such as Lexapro, or a drug like Seroquel which has antidepressant effects.

I'm having good success on Lamictal in conjunction with 60mg of Cymbalta for bipolar2. (I'm also taking Campral for alcohol cravings.) Adding an antidepressant sounds like a good idea to me.
