      It's the only thing that helps me sleep, and helps with anxiety a bit. Unfortunately the withdrawal is BAD (shaking, irritability, trouble sleeping, etc.) so if I forget to refill it... 💀

      As far as mood stabilization, it is a godsend for me. It also helps me with sleeping pretty well. The only issue I had was weight gain, to the point where I needed weight loss meds because this med works too well for me to try something else.

      Personally it has helped me a lot. I really like it. I take a slow acting dose during the day to manage symptoms and a fast acting one at night to help me sleep. I have gained a small amount of weight over the years of taking it and I have to monitor my prolactin levels as it can cause that to increase. Long term use also makes u more sensitive to the sun. I've been taking it for about 5 years. I have way more pros than cons with it. I can tell when I've missed a dose but it doesnt give me withdrawal symptoms. It's more that I am anxious and more hyper. I have tried several SSRIs and SNRIs which did nothing for me and gave me awful withdrawal when I missed a dose. I really feel quitiepine has significantly improved my quality of life. I take 2x 50mg xr during the day and 100mg at night and I am not drowsy on the xr during the day, however I had a friend in college who took 50mg xr at night and was incredibly drowsy during the day the following day as a result of it. We both have a dx of bpd
