> Are you gonna stay at 100mg of Lamictal? I think Abilify is more anxiolytic at higher doses, say from 15mg and up. Regarding Abilify's and Seroquel's side effects, have a look here:

Wow, that is a great link. Some good info. I will give 100mg lamictal one month and then re-evaluate how I feel. It is a very subtle drug, but I think it is helping.

I switched to abilify because I was too sedated on seroquel. But I now realize that I did not go high enough with the seroquel dose, or do it quickly enough... so the sedation never had a chance to go away.

I have read the ideal augmenting dose for quel is 200-300. Very little dopamine antagonism at those doses. But abilify can antagonize DA much sooner. Like around 10mg.

Have you decided what you will do?

Btw ... Has remeron been a good antidepressant?
