Questions About Lithium

I heard from someone that lithium made him feel out of it. He said that Depoke (is that the right name?) made him feel better. How many other people feel the same way. I'm on lithium right now and I don't want to be on it if it makes me feel out of it. The problem is that I can't tell if the lithium is making me out of it because I felt out of ...

Lamictal Dosage

I'm taking 200 mg of lamictal right now. My shrink told me that at 150-200mg I should notice the drugs effects. I don't notice them at all. I am a big guy 255 lbs so maybe i'm just not getting enough of the drug. I'm looking to hear from you if you've taken lamictal or know someone who has took it. If you take it or have taken it, how much do you weigh, and ...

Hardest thing spouse/loved one has dealing with

My wife has been diagnosed biploar as of 4 months ago. However, she's been swinging in and out of these episodes for about 10 years and I've been just taking it as it came not knowing what was really going on. I tried to get here to seek psyc help, but she denied having a problem. About 9 months ago I saw the worst of the worst with her being hospitalized 3 times in 3 ...

is it bipolar if.......?

I'm wondering, after reading all of the articles and messages in the forums about the description of bipolar, it sounds like my mother has it. But the description talks about extreme highs and lows and it appears that these times wouldn't actually be able to be controlled.... which makes sense anyway.

But my mother seems to be able to control it to some extent when she has her high highs and her low lows. Outside ...

a poem by me maybe triggering

I strive each day to find what is me
I keep digging deep inside but I can not see
I find all this pain deep within me
It's a shame that nobody can see
The only cure i've found for my pain
Razors I use to cut myself in vain
Somehow seeing my blood makes me feel so secure
Making my thoughts and feelings so pure
Cutting my body comforts me so
I'm told that ...

I think I am diagnosed with depression, I can't really remember.(They told my parents about the diagnosis, not me)
