Hi again!

RE. Lamotrigine.

>I had tried it a few months back, but had also been on it a while when I was younger. A few months back it made my ocd seemingly worse because I had no emotions(that's what it felt like).

How long did you try it for? Were you still on vortioxetine? I ask because you took it when you were younger, and you didn't mention experiencing emotional blunting then, or did you? Emotional blunting is so much more typical of serotonergics (SSRIs, vortioxetine etc) than lamotrigine.

>Does lamictal help ocd at all?

It's not a well established treatment for OCD, but you're currently trying more experimental meds anyway. Except in those who are allergic (a minority, and not you!), Lamictal is generally a safe medication.
