Valproic Acid, Lithium, and ECT
My doctor is going to put me on valproic acid (Depakote) in about a month. If that doesn't work he's going to put me on lithium. If that doesn't work I'll undergo electroconvulsive therapy. Trust me, all of these therapies have been a long time coming.
I'd actually prefer to jump straight into ECT to be honest. The risk/reward ratio seems to be the best of the three, but, for those of you who have been through treatment with one or more of the therapy methods above, I'd like to know your experiences.
