because, I've heard several things. I suppose I could read the website, but I'd rather get it from people with experience. I heard, initially, it was great for both BiPolar (BP) mania and depression. Then, I heard (God knows where) it doesn't do much for mania, mostly depression. So, I'm wondering, those with kiddos on it, how does it do for the mania. There's such a question with regards to depression with D, but the hypomania, we all feel, is definately present. I really feel uneasy about discussing anything else with psychiatrist until we try MS's. We had such great luck with the Lithium - maybe I just need to consult an endocrinologist and see if there's any other way to take care of the thyroid besides medications - or Synthroid/Levothyroxine. Anyway - just curious about the Lamictal - got Occupational Therapist (OT) there LOL! My ADHD is high today. Thanks!
