I am bipolar spectrum rapid cycling and started on 25mg a week titrating up 25mg until I reached 75mg. I felt SO MUCH better after I reached 50mg but after being on 75 I moved up to 100 and all the bipolar symptoms returned. Now I am moving up the scale again. Has anyone experienced this? Thanks.
Yes, 200mgs is the average therapeutic dose although some take as high as 400+mgs. Don't get discouraged. Patients is key right now while you find what works for you.
The same thing happened to my daughter and her doctor said to ask the pharmacy if they had ordered from a different manufacturer. I checked with cvs and sure enough they had changed about a month before symptoms returned. Now we have cvs special order ours from Cadista. It makes a difference!
