  1. Hi, Recently my care team has noticed some changes in myself and the current consensus is that I may have went from depressive type to bipolar type of schizoaffective disorder. These changes progressed over the course of a year (but I have been flat out diagnosed for over 4 years, the type of illness has changed over time). I went from schizophrenic to schizoaffective depressive, and now it's possible I became bipolar type (as everyone has seen me pretty much every day, minus him, and noticed these changes that I noticed as well). The thing is that I am already on a unique regimen which the medications in theory should be helping my manic/hypomanic states (though I ended up on them as a depressive type). I take abilify maintena once every 4 weeks and invega trinza every 12 weeks (injections). My doctor discontinued my SNRI (effexor). He is letting me decide what I feel is better to do in this situation given that I am on a unique regimen and yet my hypomanic/occasional full blown mania states are coming up regardless. Of course, he still has a final say. He gave me some guidelines to look at to get an idea and discuss what I'd like to do at my next appointment. Since I was on carbamazepine (tegretol) in the past when my dx was very "not otherwise specified" I naturally jumped to that. He rejected the idea on the basis that it would react with some of my medications and we want my psychosis to remain mostly in control. Upon looking into it, I was looking at the different lines of treatment and Depakote came up. I was wondering how effective this drug is in combating mania/hypomania associated with schizoaffective bipolar, or even bipolar in general. Everyone is different so I'm looking for the good, the bad, and the ugly. Thanks.
  2. What is the difference.. it's been bugging me. Because if you have psychosis through all moods even stable would you be schizoaffective? And if you had psychosis during major mood state (mania or deep depression)... that could just be part of bipolar type 1? So may someone explain to me.. cuz i been wondering this for a while.. and still do not have a solid definition. Hope to hear something soon and thank you for posting/reading
