crazyethel Posted January 28, 2006 Share Posted January 28, 2006 I often wonder if all the medicine I take is really the answer to my problems. I am very high-functioning, have always been except for some irratic behavior from time to time which could be excused as anxiety, over-tired, etc. I do have problems with depression and had one suicide attempt, but it was in the late 80s and I was an undiagnosed BP taking an SSRI. I have been in a long marriage, had a career of over 20 years in a professional position.....has does a bipolar do that??? My therapist says it is the structure. So if I were to put some structure safeguards into my life, could I make it? I would continue the sleeping medicine and anxiety meds PRN (I get in trouble if I don't sleep....have done that for decades), but would wean off the a/c drugs. I take Lamictal (250) and Trileptal (600....a hang over from a previous cocktail). I have a problem with inappropriate anger and rage, but is that me or a reaction to the meds. Certainly the meds aren't helping it. What do you think?? I'm so tired of this fog and memory loss that comes from all the pills. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
