> Hty,
> I'm getting really sick of these medications. I've been diagnosed bipolar, though I have doubts about that. Taking:
> Depakote 500
> Remeron 15
> Wellbutrin 300
> Abilify 5
> Seroquel 400
> My question is, if you're bipolar do you absoutly have to take medication, or will cognitive therapy work? I'm really considering goin off my meds and just not seeing my pdoc anymore. I'm sleepy all day, I'm always hungry, usually for sugar, and I'm gaining weight. My pdoc thinks I'm too demanding at that I'll never be satisfied. That really hurt.

Your pdoc sounds pretty heartless, pretty much the opposite to what a doctor is supposed to be. I would be inclined to try getting rid of Remeron, it is notorious for causing sugar cravings & weight gain.
