I wonder why your pdoc. did NOT prescribe Anti-psychotic med. at first, as your dxed with Bp I that has psychotic or delusitonal episodes. For this reason alone, you must need an A.P. to get a relief. Lithium and other two meds. are all good on Bp at large, but any of the newer A.P., such as Zyprexa, Risperdal and Abilify are more effectiveness and first of all, 'quick-work' on your Bp.

In regard to 'pooping-out' all of the med. at once, ... it's VERY hard to say all of three. Probably, ... you may NOT be aware of this, but just one, Topamax. Because, you've been on 'three' different mood-stabilizers, Lithium, Lamictal and Topamax. Lithium must be a primary M.S. and Lamictal is for M.S. and dep. effect and tha last one, Topamax is a sort 'add-on' M.S. to augument those two M.S.s. ... guessing. Then, it's NO surprise Topamax starting to lose its effectivenss. In my knowledge, if you're on three, even two different M.S.s, the strongest/potent one takes over the weaker one. In this regard, Lithium might have elimated/erased 'Topamax.'

This is quite complex situation, then you need to work with your pdoc. until finding the right mix.
