If Lamictal (lamotrigine) is not helpful for controlling depressive symptoms, usually an atypical antipsychotic is added, such as quetiapine (Seroquel). The term "bipolar depression" is fairly general and is important to a response about treatment. Treatment for depressive episodes of bipolar depression differ from treatment of manic episodes. I would recommend that you look at the Texas Implementation of Medication Algorithms for Bipolar I Disorder in order to tailor therapy for your patient's symptoms.
