I have been on numerous medications for years and never seem to work, I am bipolar, anxiety, ptsd, manic depression. Everyday is a struggle. I feel as if I will never be happy again. I have heard bad things about depakote even hair lloss. All the other meds I'm talking almost all you can think of hasnt worked for me these meds now are not making me sick. A day doesnt go by I dont cry or think about suicide. I am only 30 married and have a 7 and 8 yr old. My husband doesnt understand why i feel this way, it's not my fault. How long do you think it will take to start to tell a diffrence if it does. I have thought about electric shock theropy but dont know much about it either.
