Sick of these mood stabilizers

Posted by sac on May 20, 2004, at 13:05:15

I am ready to quit all mood stabilizers. I have bipolar II with mostly depressive symptoms. Why does it feel like the cure is worse than the disease? I'm currenly on Lamictal 150mgs. but have also tried Lithium, Depakote, Trileptal, etc. Why do these drugs make me feel worse as in, more depressed and disinterested than ever?? If I discontinue my current mood stabilizer I know I am risking a hypomanic episode and probably a very bad depressive episode after that, but I wondering if maybe it's worth taking that risk and not feeling numbed out and apathetic every single day because of these drugs. I feel like I'm emotionally empty when I'm on these things. Sure, I can function every day, but the zest for living is gone, I don't have the capacity for enjoying my children because of the numbing effects of these drugs.
