>To further complicate matters, anticonvulsant mood stabilizers can have anti-anxiety effects independent of their mood stabilizing properties. Valproate, for example, lowers anxiety in normal mice exposed to stressful situations. Same with carbamazepine.

In my experience, Lamotrigine has had an anti-anxiety effect, although not immediately apparent, in addition to an antidepressant effect. I have thought if originally given lamotrigine at the onset of symptoms, I may not have developed BPll and may not have required additional medication. This is personal conjecture.
