Default Mood Stabilizer

Hi all.

Iíve been put on a variety of meds and it has become apparent that things are not as clear-cut. My mood will not stabilize no matter what we do, so Iíll likely get a mood stabilizer.

(Likely bipolar and not resistant depression, as the latter apparently remains constant while my mood goes up and down.)

Iíve been on lithium. A few unpleasant side effects- not prepared to go back there unless everything else has been tried. Iíve also been on lamotrogine and seemed to gain weight. Iíd try it again before lithium.

What else would my doctor possibly put me on? I know that the lamotrogine would be a possibility, but what else?

Thanks.
