Sorry you are going through this Mark. I would stay away from antipsychotics and benzodiazepines for now and try a much better mood stablizer than Tegretol. I think a month or so of lithium or depakote would be worth a try. If you take depakote, supplement with l carnitine and l methylfolate. I personally think you should try Depakote first, and if you feel stabilized after a while but need an antidepressant, try an SSRI like Zoloft or Lexapro. I have been feeling more stable since starting LDN, just something to think about for the future.
