RLS & Bipolar w/ Psychosis

Please will someone help!!!??! My husband is on 20 meds, including Mirapex for an extreme case of RLS, but he was also on Risperdal for his Bipolar W/ Psychosis symptoms.......The doctor said the Riserpdal was fighting against the Mirapex and they took him off the Risperdal....
They put him on Depakote Sprinkles 500m a day, instead, but that does not control his Bipolar w/Psychosis symptoms totally.....Can anyone recommend what drug would be better to go with his Mirapex without counter acting what it is trying to do??
Mind he is also on Klonopin, Gabapentin, Baclofen, heart meds, 4 inhalers for his COPD, and also Tricor & Vitorin, and Morphine.....he has many health issues, but right now we are trying desparately to find something to control the Bipolar/w/Psychosis and will not fight the Mirapex.
Please help??!!!! Sincerely, Desparate Wife
