Sounds like my experience with this drug is exactly the same as Sasha's -- feeling of definite mood stability, no noticeable side effects -- this stuff WORKS.
If you are bipolar or otherwise mood-disordered, you should definitely ask your doctor about it!

Thank you so much for your input on Lamactil!
I am in the process of tapering off of Cymbalta and starting on Lamactil. I hope my experience is as good as yours.
Do either of you take anything besides Lamactil?

I'm VERY glad it works for all of you! That's wonderful. Stabilizing moods ... sounds so blissful!

Sorry it didn't work for you. From what I read, the rash is a very common side effect.

I am not bipolar, but for years I have been taking Lithium as a mood stabilizer with my AD's.
The Lithium works well, but it makes me sweat like a pig at the least activity. If it's hot outside then I have to drink like a fish because this Lithium makes me pour sweat so easy.
Not to mention I always have to get that damn blood work done all the time to check my Liver fuction. (with Lith you have to get blood work done regularly.)
I may ask my Pdoc about this.
