I was just diagnosed 2 days ago with Bipolar2. I have an eating disorder and have had depressive, manic episodes most of my life, however I was never diagnosed Bipolar, just Borderline Personality Disorder, Bullemia and Depression. Anti depressants in the past have never worked, usually they make me more depressed or super manic or super impulsive. The doc prescribed me something called Lamictal. I am not sure if I should take it, has anyone tried it, side effects? Also, I met with doc 2 days ago and he said he was closing his practice and moving away as of the 1st of Sept and he said I am ectremely difficult to treat, said I need a dialectical therapist, but could not reccomend one in the area or even find one on line. So what am I supposed to do? I think it was unethical for him to even accept a new patient if he knew he was closing his practice. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
