> Does she have bipolar features? The moods are up and down, so mood disorder is a real possibility.. There's a whole bunch of anticonvulsants that may work better than lithuim, such as Depakote, Gabapentin and Lamotrigine. Many of the drugs cause weight gain, is this what she is afraid of? Does she have a psychiatrist she can depend on? Good luck...My daughter is a diagnosed borderline personality, and has been taking serzone for several weeks now. I didn't have much hope, but amazingly, she says she feels a lot better. However, she and I both think she needs something to level out her moods and help control her rages, which are frightening to behold. She refuses to consider lithium, why I don't know. Just put her foot down about that. (She's 23) She has been cutting herself and trying various other methods of mutilation and suicide attempts since high school, when I dragged her into therapy. She's an adult now and I can't drag her anywhere, but she at least recognizes that she needs some more help with the mood swings and rages. Anyone have any idea of such a drug that would augment her serzone? She really thinks this med is helping her and wants to stay on it, but just needs a little something else maybe. Any information would be appreciated and looked into. Thanks, Deb
