Mood stabilizers include those which primarily address mania and those which can address depression. For depression you have 4:
Lamictal (rash), Latuda (nausea), Seroquel XR (tiredness), a combo of Zyprexa and Prozac (weight gain).
The rest are primarily to prevent mania: Lithium (kidney, thyroid), Depakote (liver), Tegretol, Trileptal, Risperdal, Zyprexa alone, Geodon,
Saphris, Abilify and some others. Many take a combo.
