I am so glad to be here, I was diagnosed with bipolar 2 about 10 years ago. I don’t know anyone else who has it, so I would like to be with a community of people who know what it’s like, and have walked the walk! I just tried going down on my seroquel dose (from 650 mg, to 625 mg), with disastrous results! I had been doing so well, and only went down by 25 mg, and became very depressed, could hardly get out of bed. Now my brain is back to normal, but it feels unnerving to know how dependent I am on my medications (seroquel, abilify, lamictal, bupropion)

Hi Gratefultobewell! Welcome to the forum!

I'm also Bipolar II and have a similar cocktail to yours (Bupropion, Lamictal, Risperidone, Trazadone). Glad you found a combination that works for you, and hope you like it here!

yes our medications are not always ideal
but better than not having them, well in some cases
