Dear sir/madam

Thought many medication used to treat epilepsy such as divaproex sodium, carbamazepine, lemotrizine been shown to effective in bipolar disorder, but there is insufficient evidence to say that it is also effective in bipolar disorder . Thus it can not be recommended for bipolar disorder.

Hope i answered your query.
