I have been using Gabapentin and Lamictal for about six years to manage my Bi-Polar type 1 disorder and it works better than any meds or combination of meds I have used in 20 years. It is the longest period of time I have been stable and not had to be hospitalized. Is anyone else using these meds to treat Bi-Polar Disorder?
I've taken LAMICTAL for about 6 yrs. It took place of my Lithium. It was the best med that ever worked for 23 yrs. Lithium had really bad side effects. I don't know about the other one. I take 400 mgs. 200 at bed and 200 in the morning. I also take imipramine, klonpin and adderall. This is the most stable I have been in many years. I'm glad it works for you ! Hope all stays well.

I have bipolar and have been on Lamictal for almost 2 years now. Today, my primary dr. Put me on gabapentin for nerve pain. I am interested to see what my psychiatrist will say when I see him next. Was a little nervous about trying a new med because in the past my doctors have not spoken to each other and put me on meds that didn't go well together. I am glad I found someone else on this combo... even if for different reasons.
