I have been visiting this forum for a couple of years. Friday I was diagnosed with BPI. My md had been treating me for anxiety, have been on meds that were making me worse. I have suspected for a while that there was more going on than just anxiety. Old PDoc had "hinted" that I "may" be bipolar, but new PDoc, very aggressive, says without a doubt. I was a little stunned, but yet it was a relief as well. Started me on a new med called Saphris, going to add Lamictal in three weeks. Well, now I have the task in front of me of making lifestyle changes and hoping I will feel better soon.
Has anyone tried Saphris? I am already sleeping better. Knowledge is such a liberating tool!
