Mood swings

Does anybody else experience terrible mood swings? My illness is the closest thing to Ms and I’ve been having really bad moods and emotions since about the age of 16. I also am transferring medication which does not help either, I’ve been taking gabapentine and tegretol for several years because of seizures and pain, I’m going onto lamotrigine and gabapentine. Does anybody have any experience with these drugs? And how long does it take for tegretol to leave my system and will my moods be better on lamotrigine?

@nicole_hill , one symptom of MS can be :-

So, you’re switching from Gabapentin to Gabapentin? Or is it Pregabalin?

As far as Tegretol is concerned, it would appear that the minimum washout period is three weeks.

Lamotrigine may help you with mood swings as it’s normally a treatment for Bipolar Disorder.
