I am also irritable, mostly from pain, & never want to be touched, even by my sweet loving boyfriend. I've only been on Depakote for a week,&sleep constantly. I took Abilify years ago for BiPolar,& I think it helped,but got hit by lightening,& All my symptoms got Horrifically Worse! I never know how I will respond to Meds because of head injuries. I just read good things about Haldol as a good med for those suffering from Primary mania in their bipolar. Any thoughts or experiences out there?! Thanks, Kate
