I AM BIPOLAR 1 AND PTSD.
This means that my mood meter can go from zero to 30,000 and sometimes erratic.
But Lamictal is a mood stablelizer.
It takes the sharp edges off my mood graph. (wish we had one to show 🙁 or at least explain later) It like smooths everything out. Then add on cannabis and especially magic brownies.
It makes my mania more milder in severity and duration.
I am happy and especially since my doctor upped my dosage for both Lamictal but also Abilify.
My manic episode only lasted 3 weeks after the dosage change.
