See left-hand menu for update ‘Lithium, recent advances”
Please also note that although this menu section is headed ‘mood stabilisers’, that should not be taken as indicating that I agree that drugs usually discussed under this rubric are actually true mood stabilisers. It has become a bastardised term.
The only well documented mood stabiliser is lithium.
Consider Donating to PsychoTropical
PsychoTropical is funded solely through generous donations, which has enabled extensive development and improvement of all associated activities. Many people who follow the advice on the website will save enormously on doctors, treatment costs, hospitalization, etc. which in some cases will amount to many thousands of dollars, even tens of thousands — never mind all the reduction in suffering and the resultant destruction of family, work, social, and leisure capability. A donation of $100, or $500, is little compared to those savings. Some less-advantaged people feel that the little they can give is so small it won’t make a difference – but five dollars monthly helps: so, do not think that a little donation is not useful.
