Hi I am new to admitting that I have bipolar disorder and I am quite pissy about it. I have been diagnosed with the disorder for almost ten years but I have been in denial. I have been on a variety of different cocktails-just came off of seroquel -- Very very bad for me, I fell out as soon as I took it. I am now on Lithium and I an terrified. I have read that this medication is good but I can't get past the stereo types... can someone help me?

My past medication is a crazy list: wellbutrin, effexor, zoloft, trileptal, depokote, lamictal seroquel, ativan, xanax, kolopin, cymbalta, busiprone, abilify... I think that may be it... Most of these made me pass out as soon as I popped them in my mouth and I hate feeling like a zombie so I asked to be taken off...
