MellowYellow Posted July 14, 2005 Share Posted July 14, 2005 I take 900 lithium, 2 mg clonezepam, and have been trying a new anti-depressant every 6 weeks but none of them work on me. I don't know my lithium level right now, but my pdoctor says it is borderline low but that he will allow me to stay at that level because the lithium makes me bowel-incontinent. I take Questran to help the incontinence, but it doesn't always work. Basically I go through HELL in order to stay on my lithium, but I stay on it willingly. I have been disabled for 9 years and am 50 y.o. What should I try next? My husband is leaving me because he says he can't take my bipolar irritability and yelling and "volatility" any more. Well, if he leaves me, that's his loss, because I am a good lady who loves him SO much, but I need to be able to stand myself and I feel as though I am not being "successfully treated" at this time. (He's 60 and fat, so good luck to him finding a new girlfriend, which he will look for immediately online). I cannot take: Depakote, Tegretol, Effexor, Wellbutrin, Remeron.
