Hi, L. Aside from it being awful summer (it's been in the 90s here in NJ for over a week,) the kids are home, and there are all sorts of stresses hidden in these months of "fun" we don't really expect. Also, are you taking an AD along with the Topamax?
I find that at 400 mgs of Topamax my moods are pretty stable at last, but I can still become irritable and that heart of stone settles right in when I least expect it to. Also, I swear plenty. An antidepressant helps and that's sort of weird with BP II.
Is your pdoc open to increasing or adding a medication? Could you shove the kids off to camp?
