Im diagnosed with Treatment-Resistant depression, Panic Disorder, General Anxiety Disorder, OCD and Borderline Personality Disorder.
Im currently treated with:
300mg of fluvoxamine
200mg of quetiapine
and as an SOS clonex and xanax.
My main issue right now is the rage and crying attacks and the extreme mood swings both that result from the BPD.
Is it worh considering adding a mood stabiliser such as lithium or lamotrigine in order to counter these symptoms?

Now, keep in mind that I only have a baby degree in Psychology - I'm not practicing, nor do I have a Masters... but I think Lamotrigine may do wonders for you - and that's from personal experience. I am a depressive bipolar, and rage was my one symptom that made me bipolar, not depressed. After adding Lamotrigine, my attitude quickly changed, and I felt happy and motivated to form relationships with people, as well as get out and do things in the world instead of stay hidden away in my bed every day. I personally think of it as my miracle, so I'm biased, and you should receive several opinions, as well as the consult of a medical professional before making any solid decisions, but that's my vote. Good luck! :0)
