I am 40 years old I am diagnosed Mania bipolar 1 and I have had gastric bypass about 6 years ago.it has been difficult to manage medications because of the way I now digest. The sub lingual was perfect. My mania is under control. I have regular periods now but the only negitive side effect I havent been able to manage is I experience pms for 1 day severe emotional crying. At first I thought it was depression coming on than I noticed a patern, the day after a crying fit I would start my period. If I manic cry 1 day month I can handle that for sure! So it must have and affect on the chemical imbalance during pms. I read that another side effect is lack of apathy.And for a manic like myself, that is a positve side affect. I don't feel needy, I am more confident, it takes less to upset me. I take 10mg before bed no later than 10pm or else ill be groggy all day. On nights that I have to work very late, I begin taking 2.5 four times throughout the day and then im not sleepy. But Id rather take the 10 and sleep well. Im hoping my experience will help someone. Manage the side effects, its worth it! Its better for my mental health to be in bed early anyway.

Awesome! I am so very glad you've found something that works for you.

What side effects did you experience?

The FDA lists its typical ones as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight gain.

Regarding the PMS, I wonder if a topical hormonal cream may help?

It never hurts to ask your doctor if they think it may be safe for you try one.
