Mood Stabilizers and Pregnancy
I had a couple of questions for everyone in here, just looking for a little but of input. I was recently diagnosed with a mild form of a rapid cycling bipolar disorder. For the longest time, they thought that it was depression. I wanted to know if any of you have had personal experience with taking a mood stabilizer and what you did around the time that you decided that you wanted to conceive. I don't want to get pregnant while on this medication, so I know that I will need to stop it when DH and I are TTC. Which mood stabilizer were you on, side effects, etc? Any advice would be great. Thanks! Feel free to PM me, if this is too personal of a subject to post about.
