I've been diagnosed with this disorder for many years, and though I find I'm doing better now than at any other time, I still don't feel well controlled, mainly in the manic episodes. I take lamictal and klonopin for this. Had a bad reaction to lithium, and can't take seroquel. I'm not really looking for different meds just comparing notes with others with this condition and how they deal with it, do they have psycotic episodes? Hallucinations? I think we ALL have sleeplessness.
