Hi there, I am BPII and also rapid cycler. Thank you for your response. I did try Abilify, the only problem was I couldn't sleep on it at all and all night long, I was very agitated and kept moving my arms and legs. I also tried Geodon which I was able to sleep with. I have a prescription for Geodon but have been afraid to take it regularly because of the risks associated with neuroleptics. I have some though disorder along with this bipolar II so that is why my Pdoc gave me the Geodon. Gosh, I have been on so many different things. Do you know if an atypical like Abilify or Geodon alone would be enough to stabilize mood?
