Hello i went to see the phych. dr today and he changed somethings up hope it works well.
let me know what you think of the change?  in the afternoon no more seriquel 200mg.  just at night 400mg. to sleep.  He put me on wellbutrin for the anxioty and depression.  150 sr. twice a day.  so now i am on that and abilify, lamictal, and kilonipin.  hope this steadys everything out and i can maybe be the person i was before all of this.  The only thing is i hate taking all this meds.  i get so discourged when i look at my meds.  but i must do what i am told to do or i'll end up in the hosp.  Thanks for everything and listening.  Fast1

Hi Fastie

Don't let the number of medicines through you - I take five!  And they finally worked so I wouldn't care if it were 7 or 8, as long as they work. 

If you continue to communicate with your doctor and follow his/her instructions, things will eventually even out.   I didn't think they ever would for me but I am about back to my old self.

Good luck with the new med regimen.

Thanks for the response.  i guess it does not matter how much medicine i am on as long as it works.

Yesterday i felt so very good, extra happy, energetic, and grandous thinking. i felt like i could fly.

today i am quiet and down i just want to sleep, can you go from one exstream to another that quickly?

Hi!

Me again.  Yes, absolutely you can go from one extreme to another from one day to the next.  Even feel up and down in the same day.  Such is the nature of this disorder.  I can sail along for days, even bragging how well I'm doing, then wake up shaky and disoriented one day.

I have not gone to a bipolar clinic. Do you have one near you? Did he recommend a specific one?

The clinic is a train ride away for me, also its the same Hospital i see my doctor at. the dr said it was a bipolar clinic and it teaches you skills to manage the symptoms that come BP. i guess its worth a try nothing can hurt. maybe it will be helpful. i'll let you know when i go there and what its all about.

but if i return to work soon i won't have time to go, but hopfully i'll get in there soon. fast 1

Cool. Yes, please let us know if you go. I would love to know what it is called too, so I can look it up on the web.

Thanks,
