> headachequeen,

Topamax IS helpful for mood swings....it is not the strongest stabilizer out there but it does help...BUT it looks to me like you also need an AD of some sort and because of your mood swings you probably want to stay away from a standard SSRI type...have you tried Lamictal? it is considered a good combo with Topamax.....I am looking at that as a combo...I am presently on Topamax as a mood stabilizer and for my headaches. My doc says it will work for some as an AD too, I am not sure of that tho' as I am getting bad crying jags, but for now he wants to keep me on it as mono therapy for awhile and see how I do, then maybe start adding others to it...I usually end up on many combo's but we have to start out slow with new meds as I react bad to most....I have tried some of the other tried and tru stabilizers like Lithium and depakote but didn't like them for various reasons.
good luck and if your new pysc doc isn't right for you can you not find a new one?
hang in there...
Maggie
