> Will you ask for the controlled release?
Yes im considering asking for that or possibly trileptal

> Clonazepam isn't popular in the UK at all, it's not approved for anxiety here, only epilepsy. Have you tried diazepam? Gabapentin might help your anxiety- it's rarely an effective anti-manic though.

No i've never tired any benzodiazepines, is diazepam easy to get prescribed by a psychiatirst? Now that makes sense why he wouldn't let me have clonazepam I remember him saying about we normally use that for epilesy. He also said that having these type of drugs can be addictive and would look bad on my record?!..Surely if they helped though that would look better than being ill. I feel they are afraid to presribe them. Do you think diazepam would be the most likely one they would give out of all the benzodiazepines?
> What do you mean by 'mild'? Do you mean somthing that's not very sedating?

Yes in a sense, I mean lithium and sodium valproate are very strong antimanic's and I feel these push my mood too far down if you know what I mean. How I mean by mild is, if say lithium and sodium valproate have strong anti-manic features, which mood stabilisers still have an anti manic features that would be less so than those 2.

My thinking is all thats left would be gabapentin and topiramate. Would these seem mild anti-manic's compared to the others, or just simply not effective where mania is concerned.

Thanks for all your help with this Ed : )
> Mainly anxiety, OCD and atypical depression. I just take lofepramine 140mg at the moment, I often take an SSRI as well but not at the moment.

Glad to see you seem to be coping well without the ssri.
Kind regards
