The exhaustion can be a side effect for anyone that takes it, even if they are bipolar.

Epitec contains the active ingredient Lamotrigine, which is actually an anticonvulsant that's also used as a mood stabilizer.

Learn more Lamotrigine details here.

The side effects that you'll see listed at that link aren't really going to change, just because she isn't bipolar, it's just the the medication isn't going to beneficial for her.

Did the doctor have her stop taking it?
