The same thing happens to me (also bpII)...bad increase in hypomania with lamictal. What 'regular' ad's have you tried? You might try adding something to dip the hypomania some...small dose zyprexa or a benzo. I currently take nardil, its not as activating for me as other ad's. You could also toy with the dose of your trileptal or lamictal...i find taking lamictal every other day more tolerable.

> I'm bipolar II with depression as my main symptom. My pdoc has prescibed Lamictal which caused hypomania and now Trileptal, which after two days of working is now switching to hypomania also. Is this the case for some people and what should I do? A regular antdepressant really causes hypomania.
