bipolar and can't find right combo for meds-seeking advice

hi there, i love this webstie and thanks to anybody who reads this. i was taking effexor and lexapro and lamictol and xanax and nadalol for a while, and i still felt like crap, nervous, paranoid and anxious and depressed. now i am taking 1200 mg of lithium, and the lowest doses of effexor and lexapro. no xanax or nadalol. anyways, i still feel anxious a good amount of the time, but a lot better than before but still paranoid as well with worrying thoughts. That seems to be my biggest problem; the thoughts and the feelings i get in my gut. it's like i'm always trying to figure out what's causing them and my whole existence just becomes dominated by them. can anybody pin point what medical cause this is or relate to it and what medication they benefited from?

Hi Lebowski--

Can you talk to your pdoc about what you're feeling on the meds you have now, and maybe you both can figure out what is best for you? That has worked for me.

I take 200 mg of Lamictal and 25 mg of Zoloft (panic disorder), so I have no experience with the other stuff you're taking. But if you're still not feeling right with what you're taking, maybe you can make an adjustment somewhere with the help of your pdoc.

I hope you can find the right combination.
