I also have bipolar disorder so my mood stabilizers I take do what they intended for which is making me more emotionally stable. Being more emotionally stable perhaps lessened the intensity of my anxiety. I do take Gabapentin for anxiety, but I think my mood stabilizers are what's doing most of the work at keeping me functional. I'm happy for that. I take Trileptal and Latuda.
