I went to see him recently for follow-up and he tells me I have bipolar depression not bipolar disorder. Are they the same?
My physician diagnosed me with bipolar disorder several years ago?

He is still treating me with Abilify only increased it to 20 mg twice daily and Pristiq 50 mg daily. Does this sound too much????????????? Your input is greatly needed here. Sandy

I saw my physician for followup and he increased my Lexapro again to 20 mg 3 times a day and Prestiq 50 mg to twice a day. Does anyone know what the maxium safe dose for Lexapro is?
From what I have read they are the same. Maybe you are just really depressed right now. That may be the reason why he is saying this. As for the meds this is little compared to how many I have to take. So just stay calm and make sure you take your meds everyday. Hope you start to feeling happier with the meds he/she has prescribed. Always here to listen if you like.
