MindlessMadness Posted April 17, 2009 Share Posted April 17, 2009 I'm Sarah. I was diagnosed with bipolar at the age of 21. Over the years, my diagnosis has changed. I now have problems sleeping and lately have been dealing with a lot of anxiety as well. I take 750 mg of depakote for mood swings, 5 mg of abilify, and the doctor just started me on paxil but I am only taking 5 mg right now because I've tried it in the past and it made me nautious and dizzy. Don't ask me why he insisted I try it again. Personally I thought zoloft would be better. He also had me on buspar the past two weeks but It either made it worse or I just became more aware of how anxious I really am. I can't sit still for 10 seconds I have to be in constant motion. Maybe it's a matter of how aware of these issues I really am, or maybe I need a stronger med for the anxiety but it seems that this (anxiety) is what bothers me the most these days. Anywho, it's nice to be here. A lot of support and understanding always helps. If anyone has a suggestion on what I might do , please feel free Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
