Welcome to HealingWell.  There is a post right on this page re Lamictal.  I tried it for a couple of days but was afraid of the rash and my anxiety got the best of me so I did not stick with this med.  I am sure there is info in the other thread re other member's experience with Lamictal.
Good luck to you and welcome.

scared 1960,

I am sorry that you are feeling so down. Abilify is a fact acting med, unlike Abilify Lamictal takes some time before the therapeutic dose can be felt. Give it a little bit of time and see if things change over time.

Hi Sweetpea,

Welcome to the depression forum. I take abilify and effexor and they work good together. I also take xanax for anxiety. It seems to be a good combination for me. I hope the abilify works for you too.
