*shrugs* My guess would be that the only reason I was so mellow before and my 'mania' wasn't kicking into a higher gear and forcing me to increase my Divalproex dosage before now was because I was pretty much constantly stoned.
Every time I would get stressed out or worried about something... basically, whenever my body started to act up and my mania would normally be kicking in I'd simply roll another joint.
My guess is that I was on a very low dosage to start with and the marijuana was why I was able to maintain myself on such a low dose.
My MD was talking about something called a "level" today...
I'm 5'8 and about 190lbs... not really fat but stocky... and with 375MG of Divalproex per day, that put me way below that "level". Hell, with 500MG per day I'm still quite a bit below that "level".
I knew that from the beginning which is why I didn't hesitate before increasing my dosage... and my MD found that out as soon as he looked at my last blood work which was done just like 3 weeks ago.
