Lightbulb Bipolar II drug reduction

I have taken various drugs for depression for yrs. in the last couple yrs, dx changed to bipolar II with rapid cycling of depression. Instead of manic, my high is just feeling normal.
I was laid off from my job and applied for Medicare, but no drug coverage. I applied to AZ for free Seroquel cr 150mg and hopefully that will work out. I am also taking paxil er 50mg and lamictal 400 mg. because I do not know how I will be able to afford, I reduced the dosage of both, taking one pill instead of 2. I started feeling some brain zaps which I experienced a few yrs ago in a similar circumstance when I stopped Effexor. That was awful and I don't want to go thru that again.
Any input appreciated!
