I have never been so stable. Yes it does destroy your stomach and must be monitored with lab work but in all its good. Now we are waiting for my thyroid to go wacko (yes another side effect.)

My Doctor raised my amount taken daily from 450mg to 900 a day. Severe Watery stools, whole digestive track went haywire. But it kept the episodes under control.

This has made my moods more stable then any other medication they have tried. The only thing I dislike about it is the water weight you gain from it.
