LITHIUM - REG OR TIME RELEASE FOR BIPOLAR

Posted by Florencia on February 5, 2003, at 10:55:46

Anyone out there, can you tell me what works the best--regular lithium or time release - lithobid I think its called? My brother who is also bipolar, told me it is less assaultive to the stomach. I recently was diagnosed with bipolar in Dec. 2002. I am on Prozac, 20 mg day now and taking Zanax for anxiety. I was on Paxil and Neurontin and felt better initially, but it stopped working and I gained 8 pounds which then depressed me more. Am trying to find a solution to my bipolar with a comb. of meds that won't make my life worse with weight gain, horrible side effects. My doctor really thinks lithium would work for me, but I am still not sure. Also, what meds have the LEAST amount of side effects to treat bipolar, anxiety???
