Lamotrigine. After years and years of trying what seemed like every med and natural remedy under the sun, that was the one thing that worked.

I've also had some results with acupuncture, but nothing nearly as dramatic.

Lamotrigine has also been my saviour, too.

Lamotrigine also helps my son although he's starting to cycle again now that the days are getting shorter. Just called doc to increase dose.

I am on Lamotrigine. I do like it but I am not sure if its best yet. I am experimenting with hormonal birth control. I just tried Nuvaring ...but the combo isn't working. My mood swings are out of control. I see the docs Friday for a new cocktail. I was also using Zoloft to help with depression but i stopped cause it didn't seem to work and I didn't like the side effects.
