If you think your main problem is anxiety, then you might want to give buspar a try. Buspar is an antianxiety agent that is not classified as an antidepressant nor a benzodiazapine. It is not addictive. Some people have great sucess with it and others do not.

So if you don't think you're bipolar, what do you think that the mood stabalizers are doing for you? Does the trileptal make you depressed? I found trileptal did not help my anxiety one bit.

Generally the antidepressants all are promote neurogenesis, and are neurotrophic. Ie they can prompt new cell growth and extend the function of available neurons.

The mood stabalizers are more neuroprotective. They robustly protect the brain from dammage due to various insults. Some of them, lithium and epival have been shown to promote neurogenesis as well, (prompt new brain cell growth). Others mood stabalizers have not been tested as much, but may confer some of the same qualities.
