Unfortunately, no one can seem to persuade her to start meds again. She is giving up. Depakote worked well for her, but she started refusing it because of the extreme hair loss and weight gain. We're not sure yet if Lamictal is working because there'a a possibility it's the Effexor that's causing her problems with suicidal ideation and self-injury. We're just holding our breaths hoping she'll restart her meds. If she's off too many days, we have to start everything from scratch ---- assuming she restarts at all. Thanks for your support.
