My experience with lamotrigine is that it makes me very irritable and does not do a thing for my depression. I use to joke and say "which mood is it going to stalbize me in, the hyper or the depressive". As it turned out it got me right in the middle of both hyper and depressed and just plain made me Bit*hy. I'm going to my doc on Monday and will let him know, once again, that it's making me a nightmare to be around and tell him I'm done with it. Good luck on your situation and I hope your doc can help you with something that will work better.
