CelebratingRecovery said in her post that she was on medicine for bi-polar, but that she still got depressed and/or manic from time to time.

I'm on medicine for manic-depression (Lithium and "Mirt") and those work pretty good for me, and keep me level so that I can function.

How are other people doing on their bi-polar medicine? Are they able to function? Do they still get depressed or manic?

Just wondering.

Well I was diagnosed back in October with bipolar type 2 and have been on meds since. Now the psychiatrist is weaning me off of Clonapin. I am having anxiety attacks. Some days are better then others. Next time I see him I am going to ask to be put on something other then the meds I am on to keep the anxiety under control. Sometimes I shake so bad I cant type or write well, like now.

It seems a long time to wait, until August, to see your psy. with such a serious condition as panic attacks, caused by the medicine the doctor told you to go off of.

I think if it were me, I would call my doctor's secretary and inform her of this serious new situation.

I don't think you should have to wait that long before you can tell him of this serious result of following his orders.
