Obsessive symptoms associated with lamotrigine use in a patient with bipolar II disorder

Murat Kuloglu, Okan Ekinci, Elif Yilmaz, Ali Caykoylu.

Lamotrigine has been found to be efficacious in the acute management of bipolar depression and long-term management of bipolar disorder. Currently, it is increasingly used in the treatment of bipolar depression. Literature associated with obsessive symptoms related to lamotrigine treatment is limited. We report a case of bipolar II disorder that was successfully treated with pharmacological augmentation of lamotrigine plus venlafaxine and also subsequently experienced obsessive symptoms during treatment with lamotrigine.

Key words: Lamotrigine, obsession, glutamate, bipolar disorder
