Could I ask you guys your experiences with medication on bipolar/depression?

Asked by Just_Justine (6486points) March 28th, 2010

Some one made a post here the other day, which got me thinking. The poster said, “She only really went onto medication when she accepted and believed she was bipolar”. I think I was in that phase. I felt like I had been misdiagnosed.

However, I have decided it might be better to go the medication route. I was for a short time on Solian (amisulpride) which was great, but blew me up like a balloon, I felt great though. So they tried me on Epitec lamotrigine which is also called Lamactil I think? That made my skin come out in welts so I could never reach the correct dose. They were planning to try a combo of Abifily and Epitec in the lower dose. But I gave up at that point.

Now they want to try Epilan. With Molypaxin.

My point is how did you deal with side effects? weight gain and other? Or was it easier for you. I really need to know overall general opinions on what worked for you and how it helped.
