Hi Linkadge,

Apparently my kidneys/creatinine are still bad enough at the lower current dose of 450 (down from 675) that he wants me to reduce it even further. I am hoping he will let me try the 300 mg for a while.

> Do you need to come off it all? Could you continue to take a lower dose (i.e. 300mg)? For additional mood stabilization, you could first look to valproate, tegretol or lamictal. If neither of these are suitable, you could look to antipsychotics.

Thank you for the suggestions on mood stabilizers :).
