There is an incredibly large association between psychotic mania and "religiosity". I would say that religiosity is a reliable marker for bipolar type 1 manic behavior.

> I've never had mania but I have agitation. Stabilizers make me more agitated though.

Tiagabine (Gabitril) is one anticonvulsant that I don't trust. It is GABA reuptake inhibitor. That seems a little too potent to me. I consider it to be unpredictable, and it can result in seemingly paradoxical effects. I wouldn't be surprised if it could exacerbate a seizure disorder or be anxiogenic rather than anxiolytic.

I haven't researched this to see if my concerns are justified.
