> i have bipolar disorder, with a strong possibility of psychotic/pschyzophrenic disorders. I have been on Paxil for many months now, with minimal side effects, i cant speak for the benzos, sense my doctor is a little unorthodox and wont perscribe them... He prefers a new drug that is neither a mood stabilizer nor anti convulsant, its called Revia. My point is, dont be afraid of all drugs and shrinks, some are better than others and as much as it sux to learn the hard way that Klonopin or other Anti convulsants arent the way to go, dont be discouraged to try new treatments, Ive been up to 30mg a day of paxil for some time now, and havent had so much as a head ache since the first 3 days i was on it.

I just spent three days crying hysterically, freaking out and coming really close to suicide. I just started on Depakote. I have taken klonopin before, for insomnia, and it never did anything other than knock me out. This Depakote experience put the fear of God in me though. As soon s I was up to the recommeneded dosage, it was as if the walls came tumbling down and I saw my future, in which I am locked up because I can't function in this world. I am terrified that I will never find the right medication. I was on nortriptylelene - sp- for years and it suddenly stopped working. Now I don't even know what I "have." If I'm being given Depakote, does that mean I am bipolar? Is this Doctor going to think I am an hysterical female? SHould I keep taking the meedication or stop right away? Does anyone know of vitamins or herbal remedies that help?
