are u sure about geodon not being available in canada? i don't know much about it but i have a friend, in canada, who is bipolar and i could have sworn told me she takes it. is it possible it just was approved?
i would do some research on bilateral ect's- ect's have come a long way but they still are not sure how they work. bilateral ect has much more effect on memory.
good luck

> > ECT has supposedly come a long way from the scary Jack Nicholson days! ;) I recently read an article in Health magazine about ECT. It was written by a pdoc...she choose ECT and had pretty good results. Good luck with this. BTW, have you tried any of the atypicals? I am taking Geodon and it seems to be working for me. I am BPII.

> thanx for the reply... Unfortunately, Geodon isnt available in canada where i live... I've tried risperidone and seroquel (olanzepine), both of which left me sedated and cloudy... Well, if ect doesn't work, i guess my pdoc will have to get extremely creative...
