Hi everyone,

I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder for about four years.
I have been looking for medication to treat depression and anxiety/panic, but it never occurred to me to look for medicine to treat bipolar disorder.
I only thought about concentrating on anxiety/panic and depression, and I forgot that I was also diagnosed with bipolar disorder, until I realized that it might be why all of the medicines that I was trying were not working.
Then it hit me, ah, maybe I need to try a bipolar medicine instead of depression, because depression medicine is not working, no matter which I try.
I would feel depressed and not want go anywhere. When I do go to my appointments, and I get outside, I feel like I'm on top of the world and try to get things done in just that day that I'm outside. I start talking to people for a long time until my husband stops me, but even then I still want to be there and talk some more.
Then I start to get overwhelmed, anxiety starts to kick in, I get angry, my body starts to ache all over, and I don't want to be out anymore. I just want to go home even if I didn't finish all of the things that I was supposed to do.
Then, when I am back home, I never want to leave the house again, and the next day my body feels like I was ran over by a bus.
So I don't know what medication to take between bipolar and depression.
I have seen someone for CBT, and I have seen a psychiatrist, therapist, councilor and my doctor. Please help me.

Thank you,

hi, I would seek out your psychiatrist for a mood stabiliser. very helpful, and in conjunction with therapy, even better. keep with therapy it is real important, good on you. I am bummed that ya shrink has not addressed the bi-polar. medication is a must, it is a chemical imbalance. keep strong.

Thanks Turtle,

I did see a psychiatrist before.
I did try some of the medicines, and they did not work at the time, but I am going to try them again.
I am just tired of taking all different kinds of medicines and finding that they don't work for me, but I know that I have to keep trying again and again.
It just gets old though, you know?
Again, thanks for your support and hope you feel better too!!!

Hi freakedoutone,

Welcome to the forum!

Sometimes meds take some time to work. Sometime you may need to try different ones and different combinations before you find the match ones for you.

Be sure to see your psychiatrist and work together with them when using any meds. Both therapy and meds work together to help.
Keep on trying. Don't give up! We are here for you.

I hope you will feel better.
