L - What is the name for that behavior? Something besides mania? Duh!

And, googled Seroquel. See it's anti-psychotic which I believe is 'not' just indicated for bipolar.

Finding an answer to exactly what Topamax is, more difficult.

Seems to act as mood stabilizer. Wish had a PDR or a cheap med book!

Wondering .. is it actually a mood stabilizer, anti-epileptic, anti-seizure ... or what?

My IRL friend, who is bipolar, (not RainyDayMan) swears by Topamax daytime and Seroquel at h.s.
She gained too much weight on Depakote and switched to Seroquel, lessening appetite. They've taken Topamax off 'the system' formulary, so believe she has found another way of funding it, but does very well on it.

She is bipolar, but has GAD too, and takes Klonopin and Xanax. I'm just saying this as may be why I associated the two behaviors, anxiety & mania.

tks, cf
