i agree with racer, what symptoms are you most concerned with?
if you mania is really an issue you could even try out some atypical AP's. i felt like i delt with mini mania's mostly and sleep issues, zyprexa really helped with that. the first time i was put on it i actually maintained weight, maybe even lost a couple pounds...well the second time i was put on it i gained about 50 i do caution with that.

but there's geodon and abilify and others to test out if you wish.
do you feel the lamictal is helping you?
if not maybe another mood stabilizer is better. racer was right in that i think lithium is supposed to be the most reliable but you have to have blood tests with that one to monitor liver function and such.
(but i think you do with depekote and topomax? think, not sure)

anyway. if you depression is issue trying an SSRI (or related)is pretty common first step so the pdoc will most likely start with something like that.

anyway, whatever you/doc decide, let us know!
Good luck!
