Yup. After twenty years, I've finally got meds that stabilise me. Well, I've been stable for the last 3 1/2 months, which is far longer than anything else has ever worked.
I'm currently taking Carbamazepine (Tegretol) - about 200 mg in the morning, 100 mg twice during the day and 200 mg in the evening.
I have no idea why the meds are working. But it is working for me, and I'm not going to complain. I'm just happy that my mood swings have stabilised, and that I can get on with my life.

Thank the heavens and the scientists who make the medicine to help those of us who really do need it. Wishing you well for the future.ApprovedSpamTrashLikeEditReplydyaneNov 4, 2017·www.proudlybipolar.wordpress.comUser Infop.s.
