Hi! After 20 years of various antidepressants and little results, I happened upon Lamictal by accident when i needed an anti-convulsant for a seizure disorder. I could not believe the stability it brought to my life!!! It was the first med to cover not just the depression, but the anger and slight hyperactive behavior too. My ds who is 11 has been on it for two years for the persistent depressive symptoms of his BP disorder. It was like a wonder drug for his depression! I just love the stuff! Neither of us has experienced any side effects either!
Good luck to you. I sure hope that it turns out to be your wonder drug!
