After taking seventeen medications, I was hoping the Lamictal would work. I had it increased to 150mg about three weeks ago, and the last two weeks have caused me to lose faith in it. During the past couple weeks I've started a recovery plan, because at times, I feel inspired to conquer my illness, but during my depressive times, I have been the lowest I have ever been.
The past two weeks I have been crying more, my moods have become even more extreme, I'm getting into physical fights with my boyfriend, I'm self-harming, going into periods of wanting to starve myself and periods of binging, I stopped taking my meds for a few days, and I feel outside my body.
I sometimes have an adverse effect to my medications. Can someone be this medication resistent? I am happy to announce that the Risperdal has made the people in my computer screen go away! However, that is the only thing that has helped. I haven't been on it for very long and I'm nervous. My meds sometimes help for a month or two then will completely stop.
I don't want to vent but rather ask if anybody else goes through this? Can therapy alone help a bipolar? I'm desperate for help. Thanks.
