Worried about the medication

I'm due at the counselor (Is this how I spell this?) tomorow, and the doctor on Friday, Friday will be the day he decides which medication I will be going on, and I'm rather worried. I have read a lot of posts on the side effects. Is the doctor likely to put me on a certain med at first to see how it goes? Or does it all depend on my symptoms? We think I'm a ultra rapid cycler, my mood changes every couple of days, sometimes even daily.

Re: Worried about the medication

If your lucky, they might put you on a mood stabilizer like Lamictal which has few to no side effects. If not, side effects usually go away in a couple weeks. I cycle every day too, so I am on a mood stabilizer.
