Re: Recommendations for a good mood stabilizer.
Hi stoler. There are many good mood stabilizers out there to ask your doc about. Some of them are: lithium, lamictal, tegretol, depakote, etc. Just bring up this discussion with your doc and ask about trying a different med if you don't want to take zyprexa.
Personally I am taking abilify (anti-psychotic), lamictal (mood stabilizer), and provigil (a stimulant). And sometimes I take klonopin for sleep or anxiety issues. Seems like a lot I know, but it seems to be doing the trick.
