I'm sorry. I had no idea. I apologize, Alchemy.

Just a thought; I have a female friend with bipolar disorder that uses Zonegran (zonisamide) with success. The only AED that she uses is Zonegran. I have no idea if it would work for you. I tried it once, and I hated it.

You might consider a trial of Valdoxan. I tried every med that I could think of to stop my ultra rapid cycling. Nothing stopped it until I added Valdoxan.
