I had to quit taking the lithium last srping because of additional liver damage. Then Invega worked great for about 6 mos. then I started rocking and lip licking. Came off that and just take Cymbalta and Abilify now. Just started Abilitfy two mos ago but still manic since before Christmas. I'm also a medical cannabis user. I really need a long term med that will control the mania without making me depressed. Depression is not the issue right now- mania is. In fact, I've heard if you give a manic person an anti-d it makes them more manic. Any experience or advice from others is appreciated.
