I too just started lamictal and have reached the therapeutic dose of 200 mg. have been taking it for about a week but I still find myself terribly anxious. The doc mentioned seroquel last time for racing thoughts, anxiety, constant music in my head but I wanted to see if I could use lamictal as monotherapy however I still find myself lamenting about the past, negative thoughts, anxiety, etc. would anyone recommend seroquel on top of lamictal? Will that help with the manic symptoms? I don't want to gain weight so would they cancel eachother out? Kind of disappointed this lamictal isn't the cure all drug for me.View Thread
