Hello, From everything I have read, it sounds like Risperdal may be "my new best friend" given that my recurring dysphoric mania makes me "want to smash everything in sight." But I am VERY concerned about the cardiac risks (family history), metabolic changes, and EPS. I am more comfortable with the RIGHT typicals than most atypicals. Pdoc prefers mid-potency typicals like perphenezine for a patient like me but I tried that and it was like taking a water pill. Had zero effect on me. He suggested Vraylar instead but I don't like taking brand new drugs. For example, my best success on ANY drug has been on a MAOI.
SO....... I been told I'm Bipolar many times and Doc's never seems to agree which one. FOr me I bounce around all day but since I tried to take medicine they gave me I feel throw threw a loop! The Trileptal Has made me bounce around WORSE like idk..... Usually I feel angry or ramped and depressed separate but daily. Now I'm both angry amped but depressed and tired!! Does it sound like the medicines inducing mixed episodes? Or that I had the all along? If so whats best to treat them in your personal experience ( I now we all respond different) as my psych's seem lost as to what they should prescribe. To be honest I thinking I'm untreatable and since i been on Trileptal I bounced anywhere from being angry and wanting to power threw to wanting to off my family to wanting to commit myself and see if they can shock me into normalcy to looking for ways to erase my memories to death and back around bouncing all around!?! I can't just stop the trileptal because it seem's to stop a neurological problem I been having I don't see my psych till the 20th and I doubt my therapist will be much help on wednesday. I'm not even 100% in what im writing I'm just very stressed and idk.... I just don't feel right.... No med seem to work all depression meds have failed anti psychs worsen some on my conditions very badly so there out I'm beginning to think I'm medicine resistant and can only be cured by ending it.... Then I think no there's got to be a way but I think thats just wishful thinking.... If I had an idea on what med to suggest to my psych I'd feel a lil better when I look u meds I can only find whats best for type 1 or 2 nothing saying whats best for mix (I know everyone diff) But a idea what works would be good. And This post i'll prolly regret as I been acting like I do when I drink saying things I wish I didn't forgetting what I just did all over the place sad part is I'm on 150 twice a day! taking less won't help I'll just shake :/ I give up guess I needed to rant sorry....
