Question What is a good medication...

For mood swings, depression, and anxiety. I have been on so many antidepressants the pysc. Wants me to try a mood stabilizer.

I am afraid for all seem to have a side effect of weight gain, i just want to be back on kilter.

Can anyone recommend one or a few that don't have the weight gain as a side effect. Please............

I am new to this.

God bless.

"Mood Stabilizer" the alias for drugs such as Respiradone and possibly Lamictal

I'm with ya buddy, I'm worn out on the mental health drug roulette game

I am on lamactil as well and have had no problems. Now if I can get my anxiety under control, and I am with clozopam and a low dose of benzos. Not shaking anymore and feel calmer.
