Re: Mirapex for rapid cycling bipolar II, apathy

Hi fellow Mirapex users--

Glad to read some positive responses. I'm currently taking 750mg of Depakote and .25mg of Risperdal for rapid cycling bipolar II. The Depakote slows the cycles, and the Risperdal calms the agitation and helps a little bit with concentration. It used to help me sleep, but lately I've had trouble with insomnia again. The problem is this: I have no feelings anymore. I feel like I don't enjoy anything, I'm not interested in anything. I guess I'm completely apathetic on this combo. I also still dip into a mild depression one or two days a week.

From what all of you say, it seems that Mirapex might work for the apathy and maybe depressions that I'm experiencing.

My question is this, though: Does it exacerbate rapid cycling? Or can it cause rapid cycling?

Are any of you bipolar? And has anyone "switched into mania"?

One more question: When I dip into my lows during the week, I clench my jaw really badly. Apparently, Mirapex is a treatment for bruxism as well. I wonder what the clenching is about?
