It is a good medicine to treat bipolar if you cannot afford Lamictal and Lamictal worked for you although I have to say I am not a dr and you will have to give it a try to see if it works for you and if you can tolerate it.  I was put on Lamictal and it worked for me.  I am still taking it now but in the begginning when I was put on the Lamictal my dr told me that if it didn't work or I developed a rash then the next thing he was going to try was carbamazepine.
Hope this medicine works for you.
