Well lamotrigine isn't quick, and doesn't have any general energizing properties. its more that if you do have bipolar tendencies, the antidepressant + stimulant might trigger mania, so having a mood stabilizer first woudl be good. But lamotrigine is mostly just a drug that has antidepressant effect and reduces cycling by stopping depression, but doesn't cause mania itself. i don't think theres much saying it can stop/prevent mania (except by preventing depression), so if you do have maoi+stim and your doc thinks you have bipolar risk, then probably lithium or neuroleptic addition next, then ritalin might be better. Its just you don't want to add ritalin, trigger manic reaction or rapid cycling, and make your brain more stubborn to work with, plus all the unpleasantness of crazy moods.

interesting you feel a 'buzz' from the tcp. sometimes after i take a dose i notice a bit of tension in my chest, probably would make me feel panicky if i were prone to feeling that.
