Hi All,
This is my first post here. I was diagnosed with 311.0 (Bipolar I) a little over 2 years ago. I have been on numerous medications. I have been baker acted (Not proud to say that, but just letting anyone know that in case they need someone they need to relate to) and not to help I was in an emotionally abusive relationship at the time. I spent 8 days in the hospital.
I am currently taking:
60mg Cymbalta
100mg Lamicatal
2mg Klonopin
300mg Seroquel
50mg Seroquel 3x prn (daily as needed) for my mood if I get too stressed or exciteable.
Anyone out there can relate to all the medication that the doctors have put me on?

Hi sunnyinfl22,

Welcome to HealingWell and the bipolar board.

I take 5 meds for plus another for anxiety, and that's DOWN from 7 -- my personal highest. Your med situation is not unusual for bipolar, as unpleasant as it is to take all that.

I'm on Lamictal, Lithium, Buspar, Abilify, and Luvox daily plus Ativan as needed. It's a hoot, isn't it?
