> So I'm on this combo of Seroquel XR 300mg, Lamictal 200mg and clonazepam 2mg for apathic depression and anxiety. The combo worked great for a week or so after each successive raise of Lamictal dosage but now I'm in a recession.

My doctor and I had spent a lot of time trying to find the right augmenting agent for Lamictal. Lamictal plus Abilify ended up being effective for me. The Abilify is less sedating for me than Seroquel but does still help with anxiety and depression. As for the stims, I find Focalin makes me less jittery than ritalin or dexedrine. I had tried Provigil also, but found its effects unpredictable. Good luck.
