I have bi-polar. I was properly diagnosed approximately 15 years ago. I have tried every medication, and combination of medications in the past several years with none really working or if they did the side effects where terrible and not worth taking. Finally I went to a bi-polar clinic where I was taught cognitive based therapy. This works better than any medication I had every tried, but on the down side I still get manic episodes, and will go several days with out sleep. On "good" nights I'm lucky to average 2-3 hours a night. I have tried several sleep aids with no help at all. A friend suggested that this could help me not only sleep at night, which would help keep my manic episodes to a minimum but could also help with my day to day anxiety and mood swings. Is anybody taking this that has bi-polar put or know someone how does, and did it help? Thank you
