    it always sucked the personality out of me and had me on mental highs & lows. lamictal (mood stabilizer) made a huge difference for bpd & bipolar 1. i still have my spark and i have more patience with my 5 year old. with that being said, everyone is different and reacts differently! but ive heard & read that many people (esp on here) had a luck of luck with lamictal

    I find mood stabilizers work better. Vraylar is my favorite that I've tried so far

    I’ve been taking vraylar too and it works really really well. However, I’m currently switching to Latuda because I gained 60+ pounds on it.

    I was taking lithium and I gotta say it was a horrible experience. I felt like a zombie and had no emotions whatsoever.

    I currently take lithium in the first year was pretty rough because it took away the mania and I felt completely numb. I can’t say that someone with a mood disorder who takes antidepressants may not be getting the best help. A Mood stabilizer is key. However remember none of us on this group are Shrinks.
