Hi, Welcome to our club, sorry you had to join. Why would they give you Elevil(brand name) for BP2 or 1 for that matter? This med is an anti-depressant which is considered very bad for BP by every shrink and med. dr. I've ever had. I've was diagnosed Manic/Depressive 15yrs ago then it turned into Bi-Polar when they changed the name, I've been SMI for 6yrs and I've been on Every medication for Mental Health so I know something about
this or I would't advise you about
it. My suggestion is to ask you psych doc about
the drug your on and have a discussion about
All the meds that are available to you. I hope this helps and hang in there we are here if you need us
