My psychiatrist just changed my meds and I will be starting Lamictal and Viibryd. I am already taking Lithium and several vitamins. I’m at my lowest ever. Does it get better or am I destined to always feel this way?

No, you aren't destined to feel this way forever! It does take time to find the most effective combination of medications and that can be frustrating but it is what it is.
I was diagnosed with Bipolar ll with comorbid anxiety disorders and tried many meds but I have to say that I now feel better than I've felt my entire life.
lisa has a good point... a complete blood analysis including thyroid levels, Vitamin D, and a test for anemia is in order. You probably already do blood work for your lithium level, right?
Don't despair... you will find your combination and you will feel better!
Have you ever had blood work done to check for magnesium deficiency? This was causing my depression and anxiety. Find a doctor who will help you find out why you have bipolar. Research magnesium deficiency and its symptoms online and a good book is The Magnesium Miracle by Dr. Carolyn Dean. Hope this helps! Hang in there and there is hope!
