Yes.

I'm trying to have an open mind, but it seems counterproductive to deem two agents redundant without providing any evidence.

Lithium can always help provide support for recovery of brain tissue, even if no acute antidepressant effect is noticed. Apparently, Lamictal can be helpful in unipolar as well as bipolar depression. I just don't see how these two drugs can be deemed redundant when they do very different things.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
