Lottlrigine acts as a Mood Stabilizer. The ADHD mediication can cause moodiness problems. Lamotrigine can help one's mood be nore stable. What reason did the doctor have for putting you on it? I don't have enough information, but please, don't ferl VAD if it tirns out you may have a slight touch of the condition. I avoid stimulants in my patitence with Bipolar Disorder. Good luck

Your medication should be managed by a Psychiatrist who understands your medical and psychological history. If you are not confident in your Doctor please see another for a second opinion. Please see a Clinical Psychologist with expertise in multiple types of psychotherapy to help.
