non-sedating med for BP2?

Posted by Lyrical13 on July 18, 2004, at 10:33:22

I'm looking for a med that doesn't completely knock me out. I am on Depakote for BP2 and all I want to do is sleep. When I'm not sleeping I want to just lay on the couch or veg in front of the computer. I have no drive to do anything. I much preferred my manic "busy" phase. At least I got things done! I"ve already tried Seroquel... that was very sedating as well. I see my doc in a couple weeks and want to have some info about some possible meds to discuss with him. I have been on Depakote several months now, so I don't think this level of sedation is going away. I also think it is causing some depression. When I got up to 1000mg which he said would be the therapuetic dose, I was crying for no particular reason, had headache, nausea, stomach cramps, diarhhea. When I backed down to 750 all that went away but was still somewhat depressed and some stomach cramps. Now am at 500 and am just a little down and incredibly tired.

Anyone else on something that keeps you on an even keel but doesn't knock you out all day?
