I just realised how will I know if they are working since I've never felt normal or the normalish feeling I had was hypomania which the dr said still isn't good hence the meds .

Is anyone here stable on meds ? Can you tell me about it.

I guess its about finding a balance which may (apparantly in some situations) take a while. I have just been that low all I wanted to do is die so I deliberately have stopped my meds I dont think thats recommended, however at least I feel alive and not dead.

One day I will get a balance as I am sure you will also, just work closely with your Dr and be honest
