Re: Lithium and Lamictal Redundant in Unipolar MDD?

To revisit this issue, I found one paper that helps refute the idea that Lamictal and lithium are redundant.

"These results suggest that postsynaptic 5-HT1A receptors might be involved in the activity of lamotrigine. Furthermore, they demonstrate that lamotrigine more closely resembles valproate and carbamazepine than lithium, with the advantage of an anti-immobility effect in the mouse FST when administered on its own."

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