> have looked around online and find many people going on with this awful state for up to a year.

That's pretty scary. You might try to use drugs that block 5-HT2a receptors to ease your discontinuation withdrawal syndrome.

- Atypical antipsychotics
- cyproheptadine (Periactin)
- mirtazapine (Remeron)

I need a reset, too. I'm sure that exposure to all of these foreign compounds produced long-term changes in brain function and subsequent responsitivity to medication.

Did I already mention Trileptal (oxcarbazepine)?

What about Topamax (topiramate)?

I know you say that mood-stabilizers are counterproductive for you, but they each work so differently from one another. I know people who do well with Keppra (levetiracetam). One woman who was a rapid cycler and non-responsive to standard mood stabilizers went on to do well with Keppra monotherapy. I think you can find a paper on this written by Kenneth Kaufman.

Neurontin or Lyrica?

Depakote?

Benzodiazepines?
- Xanax (alprazolam) maybe? It is perhaps the worst BZD for addiction (not physiological dependency). However, it is also the one of the best for anxiety (not anxiety disorders) and depression.
- Klonopin (clonazepam) has some mood-stabilizing properties, but often leaaves one feeling mildly to moderately depressed.

Trileptal has been shown to work well to treat withdrawal symptoms from discontinuing BZDs and alcohol.
