Barbara, Fluffy, and Katy,
Have anyone of you had any experiences with Depakote only for BP Mixed/NOS/II (my dx falling somewhere around here)? My depressions are bad and I am currently off everything and am on the mild low side. I'm waiting for prescription to come in the mail from Canada. My pdoc wants to only start me on this for the time being. Does anyone know if this is enough for the depressed side - which seems to be much more prevelant for me. I'm definitely at the running out of hope - what am I doing taking these meds that aren't working - phase.
Barb - I've read a lot of your posts and your history sounds a lot like mine except I'm 33 and don't have a successful career (none at all infact) am single. But I've been the one on the dance floor pulling the CEO out with me too. I cringed when I read that b/c it's rings too true for me. I know that feeling (especially when you don't know what's going on with you, i.e. bipolar) about the confusion of going from the life of the party to the recluse, who can't handle much social interaction at all. Except my swings seem to happen within days of each other and the cycle goes. exhausting to try and maintain a rep, when it's not you and it's a small part about you at this moment!

I, too, more or less dxed myself after reading posts on this board. After a year of tormenting trials on ADs that didn't work, I'm a bit disheartened whether anything will work.
Any input would be appreciated re: depakote solely for BP NOS and any experiences on it?
thanks everyone.
