Mood stabilizers?: As always it is best to discuss medication options with your prescribing physician. Lithium has other uses but as a mood stabilizer in bipolar disorder, other options might include lamictal, trileptal, depakote, tegretol, abilify, geodon, seroquel, zyprexa, saphris (asenapine) and Latuda (no fda approval on this one yet, but data look very nice).
