Hassmaschine Posted July 21, 2005 Share Posted July 21, 2005 I've been through Depakote, Geodon, Zyprexa, and Lamactial so far. None of them worked very well with the exception of Zyprexa which worked great but reduced my cognitive abilities to much. My doc started me on lithium and so far(6 days later as of now) I have absolutely no side effects on 600mg. I think I'm a little bit elated too, but that could just be me. I'm wondering if lithium usually works well on people who don't respond well to other meds(my doctor also tells me it's very unusual that I have no side effects on it)? He also is thinking about putting me on welbutrin with lithium. I was wondering what antiedepressant and mood stabalizer combinations people here have had the best luck with. I hear welbutrin increase anger response greatly...which is not something I want. Thanks for your help BTW I'm BP II and I at times get rapid cycling and extreme mixed states.
