    Deaf gui_66,
    One could experimentally try increasing lamotrigine to 300-400 mg/day but keep in mind the studies of lamotrigine for bipolar depression all showed it was the same as placebo. Its utility is more for prevention of depression than here-and-now depression. The other treatments I mention are more evidence-based.
    Dr. G.
