Has anybody else been tried on every medication to treat bipolar, but your body rejects them all? I have had severe side effects or allergies on every medication. Even the meds I'm currently on give me side effects when they raise them. I'm on 200 mg of Tegretol and 10 mg of Abilify, which doesn't hold off my bipolar episodes. In fact, I go into a lot of rapid cycling. Right now, I am rapid cycling so fast it is exhausting. However, I don't miss feeling overmedicated. It's just harder to manage my cycling and intensity of the episode. Somehow, I'm learning how to make it work.
