I was put on Zyprexa 10 mg first and all that did was make me gain weight and it was working wonders for me diagnosis but the doctor took me off that and put me on Lamotrigine 25 mg and that just made me worse... So if any one has any ideas of a new med for me to try please let me know.
Hi, Girl! Honestly, none of the anticonvulsant mood stabilizers ever worked for me. I'm now taking Seroquel, an antipsychotic approved to treat Bipolar mania/depression, that also controls psychotic episodes in both BP and schizophrenia.
I started lithium as an add-on about 6mos ago and I've never been happier.
As Laurie has said, you and your doctor may find that you need a combination of meds ~ what we call a cocktail ~ to manage all your symptoms.
Best of luck to you! WCV
