Welcome to Healing Well and to the A & P forum. I am Kitt.
It appears that Lamictal has significantly more antidepressant potency than other mood disorder medications so I think if your physician has chosen this med for you it may surprise you and be a good drug. (Reference: PDR)
I hope you obtain good results from Lamictal and stay with us, keep posting and know we are here to support you.
Welcome to a wonderful family.
Welcome to HW
I am bipolar, so I know a lot about these meds. Lamictal is a mood stabilizer, it does have antidepressant properties, but is used as a mood stabilizer. It is different from an actual antidepressant medication. If your doc suspects you do have a mood disorder, she will stay away from giving you antidepressant meds because they have a high risk of making your condition worse. I have never heard it used for anxiety, but who knows? It didn't help my anxiety or panic attacks when I took it...Hopefully it helps you though.
Good luck hun, let us know how you're doing.
your not alone,
