drug withdrawal from bipolar meds

Posted by Judy on December 31, 1999, at 15:00:41

I have had a particularly bad 2 years of rapid cycling- manic, hypomanic and depressive episodes. After my pdoc gave up, I went through hospitalization, and several more psychiatrists and came to the conclusion that all the different med combos weren't helping and perhaps worsening my course. I have found a sympathetic psychologist but wasn't able to find a psychiatrist willing to help me in this withdrawal- instead I received threats of hospitals and consevatorship. I am on depakote, lamictal, wellbutrin, ativan and zyprexa. Has anyone been through something similar and how did you proceed? I got some info from Dr. Breggin's new book, and I'm looking forward to being drug free.
