I use Seroquel for a mood stabilizer, although it is an antipsychotic.

I just switched off of Geodon for Invega yesterday. So far I am not having any weird side effects from being off the Geodon. I also take Lamictal for a mood stabilizer. It seems to have really helped me.

Lamictal works great for me. No side effects so far. I do take Seroquel too though. I think they work well together.

I also use lamictal and I love it. I'm on 200 mg a day. I now take a generic form to save money but other than that this medication is my life saver. I used to take it with effexor xr but went off the anti-depressant to try to loose weight. I didn't loose weight, actually I've gained weight over the years, and the past few months have been thinking of getting onto an anti-depressant. I just haven't spoken to my doctor about it yet.
