Doctor rxed me Lamictal for depression/panic. Take 40mg Prozac (fluoxetine) and 15mg of Valium. Very OCD and depressed on Prozac (fluoxetine) still. Not bipolar. Could it help?

May: Lamictal is sometimes used for treatment resistant depression. In my experience it's more helpful for the depressed episodes of bipolar & less effective for the manic phases..
