Do mood stabilizers help antidepressant withdrawal?

Recommended Posts

I have bipolar and have a terrible time with antidepressants. The doctor wants me to come off of amitriptyline. It has given me more trouble than help. It really is useless with my problem. Doctors say it's sedating but it has given me insomnia, sweats, high blood pressure, flushed face, etc.  I take lamictal as a mood stabilizer. Will lamictal stop the withdrawal symptoms?
