I am not much help here because I am not familiar with lamictal. I have taken welbutrin, it is more of a stimulant type anti depressant. It doesn't make you sleepy or gain weight. It helped me to think more clearly.
I am sure that your doctor wouldn't prescribe if he/she thought that there would be any adverse effects. So I am sure that everything will be okay. Hopefully somebody will come along with some more information.
I am not familiar with you, so I wanted to welcome you to HealingWell depression forum. There are a lot of wonderful members here that hopefully will give you some information on the lamictal.
