View Full Version : Side effect of mood stabilizer

December 6th, 2016, 05:27 AM
So I am currently under treatment for mood swings with antiepileptic mood stabilizer (off-label use actually, but that helps) by psychiatrist and it helps stabilizing the mood.
Lately I feel like I don't have friends, I am always sad and depressed, and I cannot live without feeling lonely. I feel having suicidal thoughts.
I have talked to my psychiatrist and he said that it is one of the side effect of that drug. Does anyone having similar stories about drug side effects? I am curious how you cope with side effects of mood stabilizer.
