While both can be used as a mood stabilizer, they are in completely different drug categories. Trileptal is an anticonvulsant while Abilify is a antipsychotic. They work differently in the brain. Depending on what your symptoms are would determine in part which med would be most effective for you.

Hi Laurie

Thank you

Some respond very nicely, while for others not so much because we are all so different.
