Bipolar Disorder board


Just wanted to say hi to everyone. I'm new to this site. I posted a thread yesterday about S.A.D., but I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Anthony, 22, college student, and I have bipolar I disorder, anxiety disorder, OCD, and S.A.D. (which ties into the bipolar). I was diagnosed after being hospitalized twice when I was 18 and I've been on and off various meds ever since. My problem is I tend to try to out-think my disorder, and I keep losing. The meds suck, though. I'm on Klonopin, 3mg divided into three doses daily, and Abilify, 15mg once daily. I've previously been on Zyprexa, Wellbutrin, Paxil, Prozac, Zoloft, Lexapro, Lamictal, Elavil, Desyrel, lithium, and Depakote - all with little success. Love to hear from anyone...

hey i'm 22. i also have bipolar disorder and ocd. i've been taking luvox since i was 12. i currently take 150mg luvox, 600mg lithium, 50mg lamictal, and klonopin or ativan as needed for anxiety. my ocd is under control. mainly now i'm not as depressed, i just alternate between antisocial (i used to be a social butterfly) and irritable, or "just plain bitchy". what do you experience?
i've been on prozac, paxil, and zoloft for ocd before luvox.
for bipolar i've tried zyprexa, risperdal, and seroquel (the sleepy meds), and also abilify (sexual side effects and leg cramps) and geodon for a short while.
thought we had some in common.
