> > hi all! nice to find this message board. does anyone take lamictal for mood stabilizing or mania
> I don't take lamictal, but my doctor was thinking about prescribing it for my chronic pain (fibromyalgia), and I found a lot of info regarding use of it for mood stabilizing on Dr. Bob's Psychopharmacology board. Some posters said it was more effective for certain people than any other medication. The chemical name is Lamogtrigine (?), and the posts usually called it that rather than the brand name. Good luck!

I know the manufacturer of Lamictal was trying to get it approved for straight depression. I'm not sure what the outcome was. They must have had alot of anecdotal evidence that it worked for unipolar depression or they wouldn't have attempted to get FDA approval for that. Anyway, it sounds like a good drug of choice for Bipolar while
simultaneously lifting mood.

Good luck
