i'm kinda new to meds, why do doctors put you on meds like zyprexa and you don't have what they say its for, is it to keep you from worring about having a anxiety attack, i know it seems to help, i would worry so much that i would have one, which the worry would actually cause one, i was just wondering

Good Morning

A mood stabilizer is a  medication used to treat mood disorders characterized by rapid and unstable mood shifts.  Most mood stabilizers are anticonvulsants, with the important exception of lithium, which is the oldest and best known mood stabilizing drug.

There is another thread I will bring to the top for you re this same drug.

Take care and keep posting.
