question

why not ask your doctor to explain why they are giving meds ??
you've every right to have it explained to you, and why it's being prescribed ??


just a thought

Yes if your finding that your moods are hard to manage have a word with him or her... it wont hurt in asking. I was diganosed with emotionally unstable personality disorder and am being treated for biploa= cyclothymia infact... I'm taking ablifify i think thats the name without trying to find the box.
