.Why is my doctor recommendig I take the medication Lamictal as part of my bipolar disorder treatment? Lamictal is an antiseisure medication, correct? I don't have seizures!
Hi, Suska! Anticonvulsant medications such as Lamictal and Tegretol, and the mood stabilizer lithium, have been used along with an antipsychotic to help control the mood swings of Bipolar disorder for decades.
I've taken them along with Abilify for years and they do a much better job than an antipsychotic alone.
Best wishes, WCV
