Is topomax used as a mood stabilizer?
Yes it is used as a mood stabiliser. I use it for BPD as exactly that (off license as is only available as that off license in the UK but I also suffer from migraines so was prescribed it at the same time as a 'new' treatment to try a year and a half ago for my BPD). As soon as poss am hoping to move onto Lamictal as recommended by my shrink as I don't feel that Topamax stabilises my moods very well. Also ignore anything people say online about it causing weight loss, that certainly doesn't happen to everyone!
