I haven't been on an antidepressant for years, but now on 200mg of Lamictal. My pdoc is very cautious and is afraid that an antidepressant will send me into some crazy manic attack. I always have underlying depression and am researching some other srugs that have antidepressant qualities; about
3-4 years back I was on a baby dose of provigil, which is a stimulant and it pretty well wiprd out depression for me. My good, old pdoc was afraid it was making me a tad too happy so he rook me off it. But my opinion was (and still is) I felt my best ever on the provigil (and far from being manic) I swear ny pdoc panicks if I start feeling the least bit good.
