Does anyone know of a medication that works good agenst anger, migrains, and bipolar disorder? Im currently taking Depakote ER, doesnt seem to be working.
There are numerous medications for bipolar disorder, anger and for migraine control. There are two types of migraine medications: meds to treat a migraine and meds to prevent migraines. Depakote is a med to prevent a migraine along with treating bipolar symptoms and anger. I would give it time to build in your system (as much as a month) before deciding it isn't working.
Other medications which help bipolar disorder and migraine prevention include Neurontin. Other meds for migraine prevention include the antidepressants: Elavil and Pamelor which you could take along with a medication for the bipolar.
Again, I would give the Depakote time and then discuss with the doctor at your next appointment. He/She is the best to advise what is the best medication(s) for your conditions.
I am bipolar too I´m 42 and have taken like all of us many meds.
Bipolar4life is right , what might work for me may not for you, but it is worth a try.
Ask your Dr. about Topamax (topiramate) it is used for migraine prevention and epilepsy as well and off label use for BPD.
I take it and from my experience it has worked well.-
