The fact that I slept better and it worked on what was obviously rapid cycling would not be a surprise as many mood stabilizers (Lamictal, Keppra, Tegretol, Trileptal
, etc.) were originally developed as anti convulsants. The fact that it has a mitigating effect on the dissociation/dysphoric mania of what they are tentatively term
ing tardive dysphrenia as well as the loss of cognition from what they are term
ing tardive dysmentia does point towards future recovery for others.
