Default Best mood stabilizer (help!!!)

Iím currently just came off carbamazepine I was on it since 2013 and didnít really feel it was working (I was wrong as I came off it re intro mania) but anyway it wasnít doing anything but sending me into a depressed state and it altered how my other drugs (saphris and fluvoxamine) weíre working I find since Iíve been off it they work much better

But my anxiety is out of control i can barely leave my house and my moods r rapid cycling so as much as I wish I could do without another drug to the mix I feel I need one

Some I have been looking into are

Lamictal - which was the main reason I wanted to switch but Iím so scared of the rash side effect I donít know if I can even handle taking it but I have severe depression episodes and Iíve read itís amazing for that

Gabapentin- Iíve read great things on what itís done for anxiety and I rely on clonzapam to get me thru the day and if this could get me off it and help my mood swings

Iíve tried lithium and valproic acid and havenít been able to tolerate the side effects

My dx are
Bipolar 2 with severe depression episodes
Bpd
Severe gad/social anxiety with ocd tendencies
And anorexia


Any replies and experiences would be a appreciated
