I have been doing a crazy amount of research, and I have seen a lot of success in adding lamictal to Seroquel. Im currently on 600mgs of seroquel but I’m still have some depressive episodes. It it okay to ask a doctor if that treatment would be right for me?

Hi

Yes that sounds like a good question to ask your doctor. Mostly my experience is that they respond positively to your ideas. Occasionally one might get on their high horse and think you’re taking over and trusting dr google over them but as long as it’s worded right asking their opinion it should work out well
