 Bipolar Disorder
Bipolar disorder or bipolar affective disorder (historically known as manic–depressive disorder or manic depression) is a psychiatric diagnosis for a mood disorder. Individuals with bipolar disorder experience episodes of a frenzied state known as mania (or hypomania), typically alternating with episodes of depression. At the lower levels of mania, such as hypomania, individuals appear energetic and excitable and may in fact be highly productive. At a higher level, individuals begin to ...

Hello! Ok so, i was diagnosed with several mood disorders including bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, ocd, and borderline personality disorder. I have been on alot of different medicationsls and quit takong everuthing after i became pregnant.

I cant stand the hideous side effects of any of the other bipolar drugs anymore .I take 450mg lithium now. Hoping topamax can work . ANYONE ON TOPAMAX? DRS DONT WANT TO USE IT. ## Topamax, which contains the active ingredient Topiramate, is an anticonvulsant. Some have used it to treat BiPolar disorder, but it is not approved for such uses, which is probably why most doctors do not want to prescribe it. It has some pretty serious side effects, too, include: nausea, headache, anorexia and memory prroblems. You can read more here: Has anyone else tried this medication for BiPolar disorder? ## I am currently on Toplep 50mg twice a day along with Nuzak 40mg. I have been diagnosed with Depression and Type II Bipolar. I had some memory loss in the beginning, more like forgetfulness. Mild head... ...

Vyvanse possible Treament for Depression
I don't have a question but do have a few thoughts about Vyvanse. I noticed that in the official Vyvanse drug info that Vyvanse was being considered in the treatment of Major Depression Disorder. I have struggled with Bipolar ll for many years with Seasonal Pattern, ie I have extreme depression in the winter and hypomania in the summer. My depressions generally havetreatment resistant and I have been hospitalized several times. A couple of times only ECTs could break my depressions. There have been times when depression threatened my life because it was so unbearable. A couple times ECT's was the only effective treatment. Last winter (2010-2011), I didn't bother with seeking hospitalization but strongly felt that I could not deal with another bout of such debilitating depres... ...

doctors who take care of patients with pain and depression
My regular doctor has taken sick and is very rarely in her office. Need to find a physician who will treat me for chronic pain and bipolar disorder in Winsboro or Quit man Texas. Needed ASAP. Thank you. ## Hello, Yvonne! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. However, due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll not likely find one doctor that will treat both. Anyone that requires controlled substances, such as narcotic pain medications, must see a specialist now to have them prescribed. A regular GP cannot prescribe them, neither can a psychiatrist. A general practitioner can no longer prescribe for and treat chronic pain. It might be easiest to call your doctor's office and ask them for a referral to someone. Can anyone sugg... ...

good psychiatrist in Greensboro/High Point for anxiety/depression
I have battled anxiety my whole life and my current primary care doctor thinks it's a joke and simply told me "you'll grow out of it." Due to recent hardships in my life the anxiety has gotten much worse and now depression has developed. I made an appointment with a local Psychiatrist in Greensboro but I just looked over all of his reviews and it seems every patient who comes into his office is diagnosed bipolar and put on very strong anti psychotics with major side effects, I don't want that. I was hoping maybe some xanax or valium with a mild anti depressant and some good counseling. Any suggestions? ## Hello, Jeffey! How are you? If your PCP doesn't take your issues seriously, then you may want to look into finding a different doctor. As to the Psychiatrist, t... ...

I feel manic since I started to use Epitec but in the afternoons I'm tired becauce I had so much energy in the morning ## Have you contacted your doctor about this? You may need a dosage adjustment. Epitec contains the active ingredient Lamotrigine, which is an anticonvulsant that is also used to treat Bipolar Disorder. Side effects may include: nausea, headache, double vision and insomnia.

Epitec vs Zyprexa
Hi, I have Bipolar depression since my childhood. I have been on Epitec 200mg for 9years now. I have not picked up any weight and honestly look terrible with being so skinny. I approached my Doctor and he tried to put me on Epilim but it did not seem to keep me stable so i moved back to Epitec. I've spoken to someone which introduced me to Zyprexa. I would like to know if Zyprexa would give me the same mental treatment as Epitec but will increase my weight. ## Hello, Mee! How are you? It might, but there's no guarantees and, even if it does, it will only last while you are still taking it. How tall are you and how much do you weigh? It would most likely be best to stick with using the medication that works for you, rather than trying something else, just because you're worri... ...

Adverse sideaffects
I was diagnosed with bipolar, anxiety and depression. I am taking hydroxyzine pam 50 mg 3x daily, oxcarbazepine 300 mg 2x daily, lomotrigine 100 mg 2x daily, and trazonone 100 mg and temazepam 30 mg, each each bedtime. I feel tense and tired thoughout the day. I'm not sleeping soundly, I feel depressed and I'm easily aggitated. Isn't this what I'm being medicated for? I look like I've been up for days! What can I do? ## Hello, Draggin! How are you? Most psychologically active medications cause REM onset latency, which means it takes longer than normal to enter the REM stage of sleep and you spend a shorter amount of time in it. So, it is normal to feel tired and rundown for awhile, though it will usually improve, as your body adjusts to the medications. Additionally,... ...

Epitec & EPILIM
Hi, I am currently on EPITEC 200 for Bipolar Depression.. It is a wonderful drug and has helped me alot to get through life. I depend on EPITEC every day because it helps to keep my mood up, gives me confidence in myself. However, I've not picked up any weight for the last few years and it LOOKS like i am dying of hunger..(People worry)…I spoke to my doctor and he said that he will put me on EPILIM.. But, i need to bring my dose down first to 50mg. I am now sitting on my first day where i am down to 100mg and its honestly terrible. Does anyone know what will happen if i suddenly jump to EPILIM? Is there a risk? Also, what do you think of EPILIM? ## I don't have any personal experience with either medication, but apparently loss of appetite and weight loss are b... ...

I have just started taking Viibryd.
I'm suffering from depression/anxiety/bipolar disorders. Today, as of 6th of October, I have taken my 6th pill of 10mg of Viibryd. Just after my second pill I started experimenting dizziness and nausea. I've been having troubled sleeping, and as soon as I wake up everything seems to be spinning around me. The first thing I do in the morning is running to the fridge just to grab something to eat, otherwise I'm extremely nauseous and have an upset stomach. I've been having daharrea along with painful lower part of my abdominals for the last 4 days. I'm feeling very depressed, sad, heavy, and lethargic without an ability of completing simple daily tasks. I have just started feeling shooting pains first in my feet, then legs, and now a little bit in my chest. Anxiety is ... ...
