In reply to BP depression in Spring..., posted by Sheilac on March 5, 2018, at 13:55:13

> Im BP. Been very stable on 100mg Seroquel (for depression) and 2,000mg kepppra (mood stabilizer). Also take 2-3mg xanax a day (usually 2mg at bed).

Your rhythm sounds like my own. Spring can be very difficult, and I'll even feel very run down. I've a sore throat right now :(

A bad crash is not inevitable. I don't have advice. I try to avoid excess-- like kicking too hard against a mood dip, and get whatever sleep and if not sleep, then rest.

Do you tend toward agitated mania/depression?
