Unhappy Bipolar II

I have just been diagnosed with Bipolar II. I am very upset about this. My psych has tried a combo of Depakote, Pristiq, and Trazadone. After a few weeks the Depakote was not working so he switched me to Lithium. I take 600 mg at night and 300 in the morning. I feel very woozy like I am drunk. I stumble a lot too. Has anyone else had these problems? Thanks in advance for any advice on this subject!

Re: Bipolar II

It can take a long time to adjust to lithium. It is usually worth the wait since it is an excellent mood stabilizer. Ask your doctor how long you should wait for these effects to go away.
