There is no reason why Lamictal cannot be combined with lithium. In fact, it is a treatment that is used quite frequently by the NIMH.

Phiddipus might comment on the desirability of increasing the dosage of Lamictal at this point in time. He usually has a good feel for mood stabilizers. I would just comment that for most people being treated for depression by Lamictal, it is necessary to take more than 100 mg/day to produce a sustained antidepressant effect. I don't think that Lamictal is an effective anti-manic, although it might have properties that help treat rapid-cyclicity.

What drugs are you taking right now, and what are their dosages?

How many hours do you sleep each night when you are unstable? Do you feel tired the next day?

Do you have racing thoughts? If so, can you describe them?

Does your sex drive vary?

What are some of the other things you notice when you are unstable?
