Chapter 22 reviews the mechanism of action of mood stabilizers, which can be divided into the traditional agents — lithium, valproate, and carbamazepine — and the newer or “novel” agents, which include lamotrigine, oxcarbazepine, topiramate, gabapentin, and pregabalin, and the pharmacokinetic and clinical factors important to be aware of when these agents are used to treat children and adolescents.
