It's not Lamictal or Trileptal or Abilify? She takes the last 2 medicines now. Well they have a moderate interaction together. Trileptal has a moderate interaction with psychosis. Abilify has a moderate interaction with Bipolar Disorder.. now why would they prescribe these to anyone who is bipolar? Oh the fact that Abilify causes suicidal tendencies in people who have never been suicidal ever in their entire life. She tried to commit suicide in April. She's one of those who had never been suicidal at all. I'm fed up and frustrated with these so called mental health doctors or nurse practitioners. I want what is best for my daughter. Please help me
Lithium Carbonate or Lamictal have been effective for me. I started taking Lithium carbonate for bipolar 2 when I was 17 yrs old and I was on it for 43 yrs and I was able to live a normal life. Just recently, I switched to Lamictal because I started having thyroid issues because of the Lithium. Trileptal is an anticonvulsant medication like Lamictal which is used for bipolar. It is used for bipolar to stabilize moods. Lamictal and Lithium are supposed to be first-line treatment for bipolar.
Lithium has a risk of toxicity when it falls out of range in your bloodstream so it's got to be checked. Lamictal has to be increased very slowly because of a risk of a rash.
For me, Lamictal and Lithium have been great once I found the best dosage for myself. I would seek out another doctor (another opinion).
