Benzo is not a mood stabilizer its only anti anxiety medication you need to be on a mood stabilizer to stabilize your mood
Lithium is best proved medication for bipolar d.o but it all depends on your severity and recurrence of Bipolar.
All the best.
Benzos should never been prescibed and specially for bipolar disorder
Thanks for your question. Treatment guidelines suggest mood stabilizers as the best treatment for bipolar disorder There are several families of mood stabilizers including several anticonvulsants such as Depakote, atypical antypsychotics such as Latuda, and lithium. Which will be best depends on the patients history of response and side-effects to medications. What is the best medication for one patient, may not work for another. I suggest to work with a trusted health professional to find the best medication for each individual.
Hope this helps.
