Hi Cal. Dreamer,
Yes, I agree it seems ALMOST hopeless. I go bacck and forth - should I take meds and risk these awful results or live as I have been? I always come back to, I can't live like I have been and I need help. I too am BP, I think II/mixed/rapid cycler? who knows> I've had so many different ways in which this "disorder" has manifested itself over the years - had one classic mania (was never hospitalized) high 15 yrs. ago (I was 17/18), and then panic anxiety pre that and post that - serious chronic depression interspersed with either mania or hypomania for the hellish duration of my adult and teenage life (I'm 33). Anyway, finally a year ago, I finally realized how i was, was not "normal" and could possibly be depression? I sought help. I was mis-dxed for a year too as double depressed until finally none of the ADs worked on me. I've just started my own trial and error with the mood stabilizers. I'm going off of Depakote, going onto Lamcital (scared about the rash!) and probably combining Lithium.
I thought about Topamax too. Sorry to hear you had bad luck with that.
the stats with the rash and lamictal are 1 in 1,000 (if you titrate up slowly and are over 16). I wonder what the stats are on Zonegram? Is it more dangerous? anyone know?
