Hi mon & welcome to the group. You know, different meds work different ways for each individual. It's hard to say which will be better for YOU....

I can refer you to a great website I found that details ALL the mood stabilizers and I believe anti-depressants too - tells you what the research studies have found for each one. I learned alot when I read it...
