I was recently diagnosed with bipolar II. Right now my mood swings are not terrible, but I experience a mild depression off and on. I am trying to decide whether to start lamictol now or postpone it. My husband and I would like to start trying to get pregnant in about 6 months, and I don't know whether it is worth going on it now if I am only going to have to go off it once I start trying to become pregnant. On the other hand, if I start it now I may prevent the mild depressions I'm experiencing from becoming worse. Any advice would be much appreciated.
