Lithium and Zyprexia tablets have been mentioned. I am not sure how affective they would be. Are they an improvement on the tablets i'm on? Any advice would be appreciated.
Hi, Nicola! Just my personal experience ~ I've been on many meds and med combos that weren't very effective. Zyprexa, especially, was horrible because besides not working very well I gained 40 lbs. I started Seroquel about 6mos ago and have been able to wean off all other meds. Seroquel alone controls my symptoms very well with no side effects (a little dry mouth the first couple weeks) and I've lost all the weight and a little more.
Good luck! Give it a little time to see how it works for you. It can take 4-6wks to get the full effects. WCV
