Thanks for your reply...I'll check out that book. I know that my history has made a made a definitive diagnosis of bipoloar difficult. My previous psyc doc was convinced that I had agitated depression, not a bipoloar disorder. Anyway, the lexapro was the ONLY thing that worked on the depression. For awhile I was on Risperdol too, but I was not showing any signs of mania, so they took me off of it. Anyway, the zyprexa has worked beautifully! I feel so good, I don't care if I gain weight. It took away the mind racing and irritability, but I still have good energy during the day and I can sleep at night. For now, this combination is definitely a good thing for me...I just hope it will carry me through the holidays!
