Will getting off lamitor help one to get regular periods and lose weight ?

I am 32 years old. I had PCOD problem but after my delivery my periods were normal. One and half years back my husband felt that I have bipolar disorder and since then I am on medicines like amazeo,neuven lamitor. Currently I am on lamitor OD 100. Since the time I have started my medicines I am not getting my periods and according to my psychatrist it is a side effect of this medicine and it is ok. My question is that I feel I am not fully bipolar. It is lot to do with situations and I am extremely emotional. I want to discontinue with the medicine and observe myself. Also I am not able to loose weight and yoga teachers etc say that if I am not getting my periods and also because of this medicine it is difficult to loose weight. Is it true? I want to loose weight and also try to give up lamitor and observe myself.

Welcome yo HCM,
You might have PCOD but at the same time you can not discontinue the psychiatrist medicine as it may worsen the condition.
With this situation you consult your gynaec and tell about your psychiatric problem.
Go for PCOD treatment along with your Bipolar problem treatment.
You may not loose your weight due to psychiatrist medicine,instead you should put some weight.
Go for thyroid check up as it may cause lose of weight.
Ok and bye.
