I was just diagnosed with Bipolar 1... the psychiatrist started me on Depakote 1,000 mg and lamictal 25 mg (daily). I go back in two weeks for adjustments.
Has anyone had this combo? I believe the Doc is going to increase the lamictal slowly over time because I have more of a manic problem then depression.
Can any of you out there give me an idea what to expect? The doc said weight gain and hair loss. He recommended exercise and Zinc (for hair loss).
Does anyone else have any other suggestions?
