I am type II bipolar. I have tried lamictal and antidepressants. The lamictal did not work well enough and the antidepressants made me manic/suicidal, even if mixed with a mood stabilizer. I am now on 50mg Seroquel and its helping balancing my mood/depression but I am incredibly sore, dizzy, sore throat, etc. Its only been about four days. Does anyone know if the side effects will subside after a couple weeks?
