> Sean, was neurontin the first mood stabilizer you tried? Have you been on lithium? If so, what was your experience? If not, how did you decide on neurontin as the mood stabilizer to go with?
> BTW, a good friend of mine is on neurontin for epilepsy. She tried lamictal, but developed a rash, which some people do. The neurontin works pretty well, tho she has seizures around her period. Major side effect for her: tiredness. But compared to other anticonvulsants she has been on, the neurontin is the most tolerable for her.

I have been on lithium and there are more side
effects (like dizziness) with Neurontin. On the
other hand, no blood work-up is needed, so it is
easier to take.

For me, it seems more effective than lithium. My
cycles are fairly rapid (for a male) and seem to
take about a month to complete. Lithium is more
effective for longer cycles from what I've read.
