There are a lot of people in this forum that use APs for mood stabilizers, so give it a little more time and you might hear from them. I was on Geodon for about
5 months last year, but had to stop because of side effects. Abilify is another one that I was on for a while but had to stop due to side effects as well. It is not unusual for a doc to put people on one or more APs, so you are not alone.
Only by seeking challenges can we hope to find the best in ourselves.
