I recently had a telephone consultation with a Psychiatrist, an as a result of that have been prescribed Lamotrigine. This referral was from the request of my GP for bipolar. The Psychiatrist prescribed this medication but made a point of saying he wasn't diagnosing me with bipolar. I don't understand, why prescribe medication for the symtoms. Would this be done if I had symptoms and signs of something like arthritis?
