Hi, harrisjo! Drugs such as gabapentin, lamotrigine, topiramate, and carbamazepine are technically anticonvulsant (anti-seizure) medications but are commonly prescribed off label for depression and related illnesses because of their mood stabilizing ability.
Best wishes, WCV

Morning go with Wildcats answer mostly this medication Gabapentin is for nerve pain which works great for many when other medications don't also doe help many when they get on the higher dose for depression this is on off label use this means it has never been approved by the FDA for this use but when doctors started using it a side effect of it is it helps many people that also have depression have a great day Chuck1957
