Re: In need of some advice :(
I know it's easier said than done, but try to hang in there. If you need to get a second opinion, do so. I know someone who is well-know and has rapid cycling BPII with psychotic features. She tried over 20 different meds before she found one that worked (Lamictal) and even then, it took a year for the side effects to disappear. She said that although it was a difficult struggle to wait that long for the side effects to go away, for her the benefits of Lamictal far outweigh the negatives. I hope you're able to find a med combo that works. Good luck.
Atypical Bipolar I Disorder with Rapid Cycling
Risperdal 1mg titrating to 6mg/day
Klonopin .5mg (2x/day)
Trazodone 100mg or 200mg PRN
