Hi, Scott and welcome! I have had some difficulty getting this site to work; couldn't see new threads, so I apologize for the delay. It seems that others are having the same problem, but don't realize there ARE any new ones becuase there are usually lots of replies.
So glad you found us, there are a lot of great people here who are very caring and helpful. I'm sorry you can no longer work; I am in the same boat as you. Had to quit a great career that I dearly loved, but the stress finally did me in, couldn't fight it anymore. Actually much happier now, anyway!
I took those two meds and while they did work, I got too fat! I lost it all tho, thank god! Now I take Trileptal, Seroquel, Lamictal and Welbutrin, finally found that magic cocktail. It works well, as well as any can for BP, it never gets perfect, does it?
I would be interested to hear your story; I got diagnosed 15 yrs ago but have suffered my whole life, just didn't know what it was! (I'm 4o).
I hope to see you around; don't leave yet, maybe the site will get fixed soon.
