> > > It really sounds like these damned antiepileptic/mood stabilizing drugs aren't doing you much good and may be doing you some harm. To me, it sounds like you are suffering from depression/anxiety more than anything, and I'm wondering why these doctors haven't tried an antidepressant. The Klonopin will certainly help with anxiety, but it sounds like an antidepressant might be worth trying.

> i think i'm going to ask about it. i do remember still having bouts of mood swings but not like it is right now with being on lamictal. today, however i feel great. good mood. not manic, just good mood.
