I've taken Lamictal with Celexa for 10 years now. It was initially to curb some of the manic/compulsive behaviors I was having on the SSRI but it touched on some depressive symptoms such as motivation and self promotion and social anxiety like AD's hadn't.

During switches to other (or no) AD Lamictal seemed to act differently, almost sedating, whereas with Celexa sometimes it makes me racy and It's hard to read/concentrate at higher doses.

FOR ME and some others who have posted it is VERY difficult to come off Lamictal if you've been on it for a while. If I go down to 150mgs I'm flat out suicidal.
