Can I ask my pdoc to change Lithium for an Anticonvulsant?

Recommended Posts

Hey I was reading sometimes Anticonvulsants are used to treat bipolar disorder as off-label.

I can't tolerate Lithium weight gain and excessive thirst and urination all day long.


Is it possible he may discontinue my Lithium and put me on an anticonvulsant like Topamax, Zonegran, etc?
