hi friend, i totally understand where you are coming from, i've been in the same spot. the meds you talked about, i have never tried. right now ,i take wellbutrinsr400mg in the am, atbedtime i also take remeron45mg, oxazepam(serax)45mg,totaled,lamectal100mg. they have been pretty helpful. i do have some very rough days still, but i guess we all do. sure hopes this helps you. good luck

I love abilify has worked really well for me. I am now looking for new med though since it has raised my sugar levels and I have a history of diabetes in my family. I also believe that is what my have caused my trouble in swallowing still looking into that. If you review the drug and find that you may be able to tolerate it I would go for it. Hope this has helped in some way.

I take 200 seroquel * 200 lamictal * 3mg xanax * 20 mg dexedrine *16 mg suboxone * 50 mg tegretol *100 zoloft.
It's alot... and we have added gradually... adding on when no help is offered.
Never have taken any away in a while.
Was on Lithium... could not tolerate it along with Klonopin.
Have had a very hard year, being newly diagnosed at 47 yrs old... years and years of symptoms... self medicated.
So, we have started from ground zero (me and pdoc)
Still tweaking and twitching the meds... not quite worked out... still cycling in my bipolar.
