Mood stabilizer meds
My son's dr is going to start him on a mood stabilizer. He's already been on depakote. What would be a good mood stabilizer to use?

Dear Mary,

This matter can only be assessed via thorough knowledge of your son's clinical picture. Depakote is a mood stabilizing drug, as are lithium and tegretol, and there are other options. Whether one or the other is a sensible option for your son depend on his symptoms, other medications he has been on, medications he is currently on, etc. Dr. KDK
