I am bipolar 2 or so they say. I have been taking epiec 200 and rispadol. I have lost the will to live without the depression of course and i have become an angry horrible person that no one can be around. I have shakes in the head and tiredness that is so not me. I have started to reducing the meds and is on 50 now. I am feeling much better and the old me is returning. Why do people think epitec is such a wonder drug?

I was so impressed when i read your reply!! I frimly believe that the body only reacts to a unbalance. Is it possible that you can keep me up to date in order for me to follow your results? I am just concerned that you are still on the tablets and that you might believe that you can go off and hit a wall again? Good luck!

I am also bipolar 2 and according tto my new doc, u need to have a combo of Epitec, and other mood stabilisers.For 2 yrs I was on the wrong medication and also made me feel like that, and as if I was taken no medication at all. I'm not sure if this website is South African but please try Dr Franco Colin, he is excellent, based in Pretoria. Just google his name to get all his details.

Please don't diss my advice just because it seems so, well, easy. Try it for at least a week. To clear up any impurities(pimples) of the skin and rid yr body of bad toxins: drink 2 cups of green tea a day. Best to drink your green tea the same as you would drink any tea. I take it with milk and sugar. I have seen acne clear away with this.

Annelize, Hi! This is how I, at 31, went from a size35 to a size32 and STAYED a 32 for the first time ever. A diet is like trying to forget about an ex. You make food yr lover cause the centre piece of yr day is structured and planned according to this lover guy named 'food'.
Try this:
Wat die hart van vol is loop die mond van oor. Meaning, if you talk about this 'food' guy, you will never get over him/it. Just like you dont talk the whole day bout a guy you are trying to forget.
So: Just say: 'wow, my jeans shrank in the wash, must not tumble dry it again'. After a day or so, you will open the fridge and think 'my jeans is gonna shrink again(and get that porksausage feeling). So instead of weighing carbs, you feel a hem or beltbuckle cutting into your skin. Now food is to feed, not to comfort and you eat whatever you feel like. That is the only way to never crave. Eat regularly(start the engine burning feul all day long) and only use side a plate(yr tummy will shrink naturally.

I've been diagnosed with Bipolar about two weeks ago. My doc started me on 50mg Epitec from the first day. 25mg A.M. and 25mg P.M. After 7 days I'm on epitec 100mg per day.

I feel terrible!!!!! My head spins, i can't sleep, it feels like blood rushing through my ears when I turn my eyes (I hope it makes sense!), i have the most terrible nightmares, i'm dizzy, sometimes have slurred speech. All I know is that I cannot continue feeling like this! I have never been so close to killing myself as now as I cannot STAND the side effects.

My doc just keeps saying I have to take the meds at P.M. only, but i feel no change.

Am i going crazy??? What do you guys suggest I do???

Please, please help!!!!!!!!!!

I have taken Epitec (100mg) for a year now. The side effects have diminished markedly. I think I have grown used to the drug. I spread out my intake: I take 50mg in the morning and 50mg again later in the day.

WIlna!
I hope u read this.. There r two types of bipolor. For instance I am bipolor 2 which unlike bipolor 1 does nt hav extreme mania but rather hypermania states. This is simply a milder form of mania. Bipolor 2 is caractorised with a sort of "major depression" with hypermania. So to avoid being cofused I recomend that u ask ur psychiatrist to explain to u the differences more accurately and help u understand better. Don't just accept it if u dnt understand it else it will just b harder. Just b careful and try for a second oppinion. Take care. Mags

MC Says:

Hi Helene, my name is Chanelle. I was diagnosed with Bipolar 2 about 6 months ago, after landing up in hospital due to suvere depression. I am on 200mg Epitec and 50mg serdep and until recently I was on fluanxol for anxiety. This combination of drugs has changed my life. I have gone from being a danger to myself and a heavily messed up individual to a calm, happy, focussed woman. I still experience mild mania and sleeplessness and I have an occasional öff" day. Today I found out that it is due to Epitec that I gained 7kg in 6 months. It broke my heart. Just know that you are not alone. My docter never warned me against weight gain..... Now that you know you must actively avoid it. Eat healthily, avoid regular alcohol in take and do some exercise... I know it is easier said that done! I myself have weight problems. However, I would rather carry extra weight that go back to being the person I was before Epitec. I just wish I was warned about the weight gain because it is very difficult to loose weight on Epitec. Good luck! x

My mom said wat good is being skinny gona b if u loose ur health. She`s right my meds r important and so wat if I gain weight. I'd rather b chubby and happy than b skinny and depressed. Dnt stress about anything but getting mentally strong! The rest will follow! Lotsa luv mags
