Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. There really is no such thing as "how much" of one substance will help treat your symptoms of Depression. This is because our body chemistries are different so each of us responds to the medication differently as well. In addition, there is also the factors of how severe your depression is and how much of the Lamictal you are taking. For some patients, they respond well to 100mg/day of the Seroquel and for others they need 500mg/day. So right now it would be best for you to start at a low dose of either 50 or 100mg of the Seroquel and then just gradually increase the dose by 50mg every week till your depressive symptoms stop and that is when you will find out the dosage that is needed to lessen your depression.
