I'm on Latuda 40 mg which has stabilized me somewhat and helped my mania a ton, Gabapentin 300 mg twice and klonopin. I'm very very afraid to try new meds due to my high sensitivity to them and constant side effects. My doctor wants me to try Lithium and i've been offered it before but refused due to it being so intense, i've been on depakote a similar drug but it made me gain weight and lose hair and lithium has the same side effects? I'm so scared should i try it or try something else.. also she wants to put me on brintellix which i have never heard of and most anti depressents seem to make me more depressed so i'm very un sure???
