mood stabilizers, bipolar disorder, Dr. Paul Markovitz  Q. I can't seem to find a mood stabilizer that works. I can not be on antidepressants, they escalate me to mania or hypomania. I've tried lamictal, lithium, depakote, tegretol, etc. Any new meds or recommendations?

I dissociate a lot.

  A. I would try Serzone as an antidepressant. Go from 100 mg at bedtime to 500 or 600 mg at bedtime in 100 mg increments as tolerated.
