My daughter has a diagnosis of bipolar illness. She is on no mood stabilizer and is taking a combination of Wellbutrin and Cymbalta. Her therapist says the Wellbutrin is acting as a mood stabilizer.
Hi, ec! Wellbutrin is an antidepressant as is Cymbalta. Be cautious as antidepressants can provoke manic episodes and the patient should be closely monitored by a doctor, preferably a psychiatrist.
Has anyone ever suggested lithium, a mood stabilizer, or one of the anticonvulsants like Lamictal or Topamax which act similarly to lithium?
