I was diagnosed with bipolar in 2005. But over the years as I became more educated about it, I was like "Hey? I'm not manic, I don't do these crazy, wild things that they say bipolar people do! I'm just majorly depressed!" Now I feel idiotic!!
Hi, I'm not an m.d. But I can tell you that my son is not bipolar but on the autism spectrum d endures mood dysregulation. Lamictal is a great stabilizer. I ambipar and take it with lithium. I needed it because it'll idea a lift vs being so stable I'm "flatlining." Good luck to u.
I don't know if I am exactly bipolar, but I have always suffered from terrible depressions and extreme moodiness. After being off Lamictal for awhile, I have just gone back onto it as the moodiness and irritability has really been affecting my relationships negatively. I have found, before, that this medication is the only one that stabilizes my moods in a pleasant way, without compromising my creativity or passion, and without "flatlining" my vibrant and colourful, quirky, eccentric personality.
