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?
