Welcome to Healingwell, I'm sure you will like it around here.
I want to let you know that it doesn't help you if you are not truthful with your pdoc. Why do you feel the need to this? The best treatment you can get for yourself is by being completely honest with your pdoc.
There are a whole slew of different type of medications out there for you pdoc to choose from. If one is not working or you feel you need more you need to let him/her know so they can make the proper adjustments.
It takes a long time to find the right dosage and combinations of medications to see what works well for you. So you are not alone with needing different combinations of meds. Most bipolars are!
Appointments with your pdoc will be close together while this adjustment period takes place and is not unusual and pretty standard infact until you find a happy balance for yourself.
Once you find a happy balance, it doesn't mean that THAT cocktail will work for you for life. A lot of things contribute to how the medications and bipolar works out for us like, stressors and just the coarse of how bipolar take us on.
Good Luck...I hope this information helps some.
