Default Mood Stabilizer

Hi all.

Ive been put on a variety of meds and it has become apparent that things are not as clear-cut. My mood will not stabilize no matter what we do, so Ill likely get a mood stabilizer.

(Likely bipolar and not resistant depression, as the latter apparently remains constant while my mood goes up and down.)

Ive been on lithium. A few unpleasant side effects- not prepared to go back there unless everything else has been tried. Ive also been on lamotrogine and seemed to gain weight. Id try it again before lithium.

What else would my doctor possibly put me on? I know that the lamotrogine would be a possibility, but what else?

Thanks.
