Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Here is a short list of the medicines.  You can find additional information here at Medication for Bipolar Disorder.

Prescription Medications - Mood stabilizers

  • Lithium Anticonvulsants
  • Valproate (Depakote) 
  • Carbamazepine (Tegretol) 
  • Lamotrigine (Lamictal) 
  • Gabapentin (Neurontin) 
  • Topiramate (Topamax) 
  • Benzodiazepines Clonazepam (Klonopin) 

I hope this helps.

Be well,
