Hi you guys..great to hear from you.

Barb-cat--poo poo about the fibro stuff. As if being bipolar isn't enough, huh? I hope you're feeling better today.

Katia--you sound well. Curious why you're cutting down so much on the seroquel? Do you just not want to take too many drugs?

Well I'm hanging in there with the Seroquel. It's been a week now, and I haven't suffered any major side effects besides the sleepiness, which I needed. I've been sleeping a solid 7-8 hours every night. I just moved up to 25mg last night, and I've been a tad woozy this morning. But I know I'll adjust to it. I'm not just using it as a sleep aid. ('sides--I HATE how Benadryl makes me feel--it's much worse!) I know I need some extra help in the mood stabilization department. Risperdal seemed to work for that, but made me feel apathetic. So hopefully, the seroquel will work, but work better w/o that unpleasant effect. The atypical AP's are all so different in terms of how they effect people. I've been a lot more stable this week over last. So there's hope after all. Once we get it up to a decent dose, we'll slip the ol' Risperdal out of the picture and see how I do.

I'm still taking Depakote at 750mg, but it just doesn't cut it alone. I still rapid cycle on it, only it's less intrusive than before Depakote. (I was ultra-ultra rapid cycling before!)
