Anyone taking topomax...for a mood stabilizer? Is that right?
What are your experiences with it?

I am asking because I am having a little trouble with mania again, and I have been working with my p to try to control it. We have tweaked the meds I take now...Seroquel and Geodon. The extra seroquel made me sleep all the time. So we went back down on it, and upped the geodon. It is just not controlling it. So I figure I'll be back in there discussing other options in the next week.

I want to go in armed with some information. I am going to google the issue, and see what I come up with.

Don't tell my p, but I would love to find a mood stabilizer that 1. does what I need it to and 2. inhibits my appetite. Every new drug makes me gain more weight! Yuk.

However, 1. is more important than 2. Obviously.

So if anyone can tell me about it, I would appreciate it.
