i take symbyax, zyprexa and klonopin.
i was diagnosed bipolar more than a year ago.
my mood is very unstable and i make some very bad judgement calls.
lately i have felt a lot of anxiety and even rage.
i feel like the meds are working but just barely.
i also feel like i am going to lose my grip on reality......

i used to take lithium and depakote but i was not getting favorable results.

Hello there :welcome:
I currently am in hospital. My mood was unstable for 3 years. Currently I am on Haolperidol (Haldol U.S), Lithium, seroquel, gabapentin. Also on a sleeper. I am meant to start Depokate soon. I suffer mostly with mania or very big highs. I seem to have become a little less manic with the haldol being added any my seroquel being changed to slow release.
Hope you get something to get you stable.

Unstable - I mean that my mood was very, very rarely on a level - stable. I spent most of my time manic or very high. I rarely get depressed - not for very long periods if I do get depressed. My mood is mainly always high or some degree of highness. HTH.

Hey, I was released from hospital a month ago, but it's looking likely I'll be going back in. I'm on aripiprizal, lamotrogene, fenegon and larazapin. Not bad for a 17 yr old. I was only diagnosed with bipolar 1 about 4 months ago xxx
