Bipolar Meds., and Health Meds.,........ ?

Hello to ALL,

I was just wondering if anyone has any problems having to add meds.,
for your health, with Meds., for Bipolar ?

I guess what I mean is if you have an illness, such as an immune disorder,
and you are already down, then when you add ' depression ',
and the meds., that go with it, to this, it makes for a difficult situation.

Or, if someone has to take a med., for health reasons, and it happens to
be a med., that could send you into a fit of MANIA, this too, could
make for a difficult situation.

I would like to hear from anyone who has/is experiencing these problems,
with their meds.,bc I am in a difficult situation !

Gee Gee

Gee Gee,
The only problem I have had so far is I can't take Inderal or Ibuprophen because I am on Lithium. I believe they increase the Lithium level in your body. I haven't had much opportunity to be on regular meds.
You put out a good question. A person should let their Pdoc know what they are on if a new drug is prescribed and also before taking OTC meds, check with the pharacist.

Hey Gee-Gee,

How about the frequently occuring situation of long term Lithium medication increasing the risks of Upper Respiratory Tract Infections...???

Which itself requires the frequent use of broad-spectrum Anti-Biotics (a bad thing in itself)

Which effects the ENTIRE immune system of the body...!!!

Another good thread, keep going, you have started some very intersting threads...!!!

Hey ! Hedge,
Thanks for your reply !

Yeah, how about having an immune disorder for a year, can't get enough
sleep. Then, get down with depression and not be able to get out of bed
a LOT of days..., and med., for the depression, affects things.

My whole immune system is weakened. I have no energy, totally Zapped !
Then, I am given a med., that sends me up the wall ! It's a steriod type,
and makes me a bit on the aggressive side, ill, no patients and all of that,
interfearing with my whole system !

I am almost passed these stages though. The steriod was for a short time.
I am beginning to feel some better.

The bad thing is, the Doctors say there is nothing that can be done for
this condition........., errrrrrrrrrrrr...........,

I know what you mean, about the Antibiotics ! I think I have worn all of them
OUT, and maybe this is a bit of my problems...,

Thanks Hedge, I appreciate your compliment about my Threads.
I try to come up with something from my own experiences.
Believe me, I have had numerous ones since 85' !

You Take Care, and come back, when you can..., okay ?
GeeGee
