      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. Be sure to consult with a psychiatrist to see what they think

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

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

      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
