  1. I took melatonin after switching from non-generic to generic ambien which hardly works for me. Melatonin worked well but I woke up depressed and anxious. Uh uh.
  2. When I saw the words nurse practitioner, I thought, of course; compassion.
  3. I switched from lithium to Depakote in May. I was taken off lithium in July and went very manic.on the Depakote I got very depressed and had every side effect in the book, nausea, tremor, hearing loss, hair loss. I went off a few weeks ago and all the symptoms are gradually coming back to normal. Responding well on low dose of Tegretol . I hated Depakote . Bipopular
  4. Thanks jto7, this gives me courage as i start my tegretol journey! Bipopular
  5. I am switching from Depakote to Tegretol and wonder how others have fared. I was on lithium for 15 years but my kidney panel wasn't good. Depakote kicked my butt so severely I am titrating off as of today.How was the titration? I've been nauseous, tremors, sad and miserable for 4 months with 1 thrown in manic episode. Love to hear from anyone.

  7. I am in the middle of titrating up on Depakothe after 15 years on Lith. Loved that but was starting to show signs of trouble with my kidneys. On 2000 mg. of Dep now and totally off Lith. Feeling hyperactive, restless, hypomanic. Hoping to go on Dep ER soon so my dose doesn't fluctuate , and thus my moods. Also experiencing intense hip pain since Dep. came along. Anyone else hyper on Dep early stages??
  8. When I am stable on meds and just a tad hypomanic. I'm happy and energetic. I am a rural landscape painter and I get huge joy out of it. If I am depressed, forget it; I am close to dysfunctional.
  9. Thanks Siggmin. Good for you and very encouraging. B
  10. Hi All, I posted this before the great crash...looking for success stories of depakote. Been on lith for 15 years and my doc prescribed depakote ER. Start in 3 weeks. Please no horror stories, just how it worked for you. Thanks, BP
