> I experienced a good effect on Lamictal 25mg for 3 months, then depression again. But my pdoc said I have to increase Lamictal up to 200mg (what I did slowly) and he said that it can take until 6 months to 1 year sometimes to be effective ! We'll see.

That doesn't sound right to me if one is treating unipolar depression or bipolar depression in the absence of rapid cycling. It can, however, take 6 months or more if one is attempting to treat rapid-cycling.

If you are not rapid-cycling, I would suggest that you continue to work with other treatments with or without Lamictal. You might want to add Wellbutrin at this point.
