Sharann, I too am very sensitive to medications. I have been on so many I can't remember them all. Just started a new one last night, keeping my fingers and toes crossed that "this is the one!" It seem BP is hard to diagnose, so many factors to consider. As a child I was always told to "slow down", I had so much energy all the time. Never was really a depressed person but once I hit a certain point/age in my life, I was so manic, then later came the depression, then came the rapid cycling, which to me is the worse. But anywho, you just have to take one day at a time and do the best you can to keep yourself well.
Good Luck and have a great Friday Eve!
