Is this at the suggestion of a doctor or psych? I wouldn't attempt to go off any medications without doctor supervision. One thing about this is you CAN'T take control of your Bipolar. You have to be on medication or risk cycling up or down. I'd speak to your psychiatrist or doctor before attempting to go off any medication. If you don't like what you're on, it can be changed too...

what's happening on June 1st?

Hi HecStarr190,

Welcome to HealingWell and to the bipolar board. While I wouldn't go so far as to say you CAN'T manage without medication, I would say it's pretty sketchy territory. You definitely should do it under the supervision of a doc. How long have you been medicated? Why are you trying to get off now? It's sometimes a sign of mania that people suddenly want to get off their meds, so that's something to consider. Are you sure about this?
