I'm on depakote, abilify, Klonopin, and Ambien when needed (rarely needed).
I've been diagnosed with psychotic depression and schizophrenia before, but now my Diagnosis is Bipolar type I; my shrink says that some people w/ my kind of bipolar "seem" schizophrenic at high and low points.
ANYWAY, the "awakening" is like this: I suddenly want to take more responsibility for my life, I suddenly "get it," if you know what I mean. Like, I respond to social cues better, I care more about things, I'm more interested in developing hobbies, my outlook is less bleak (although I still have slumps).
Its a good thing overall, but its bizarre to be made more in touch with my emotions by way of taking a medication.

Hope this helps.
