Hi gaz,

I have been off of all my bp meds since October.  Lately things have been pretty bad, but all in all it has been much better being off the meds.  I may have to go back on them someday, but being med free is great.  I wish you all the best, take it slow, and take care of yourself.

hello gaz, i'm a new member to the forums

good luck on your quest to go off meds. I'm still on pretty much a heavy regime much like your old one. Kind of scary thinkig where I'll be without them, but my mom is a role model for me. Shes bipolar and has been off meds since she was 35. She's now 65 and very stable... a pillar of hope for us all I believe. there is remission and respite after all we go through, just might come sooner for one lucky as yourself... or later, just have to persevere yah? (thats what I keep telling myself despite the fact I'm pretty low these months)

Take care and keep posting... this site is a great comfort.
God bless everyone

Bipolar Type 1
Social anxiety/agoraphobia
100mg Lamictal 3 times daily
500-600 seroquel at night
2.5mg diazepam 3 times daily, 10mg at night
