... Apparently, I'm bipolar. I think someone forgot to get me my platinum membership card... I've been on Abilify and Celexa for quite some time, but now having a hypo mania phase, today my pdoc has added Topimax to the mix (low dose to start, filtrating up to 100mg is the goal) and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience or advice with this particular combination? In the... (11 replies)

... prayers since my daughter has been readmitted to the hospital yesterday. She was not doing well with the Celexa and Abilify....they would sedate her and make her dizzy each time they tried to tirate her up on the Celexa and at one point she even blacked out. ... (13 replies)

... e of the symptoms.....a colleague who is now following my daughter as an outpatient feels that she has more of a depressive disorder and was attempting to up the Celexa with the hopes of getting her off of the Abilify all together.

... Hi Goody~ glad to hear she is seeing a therapist.I hope she likes him/her.A good therapist is a plus ,she can tell them everything she can't tell you. I have felt so much better since finding my therapist,it helps to talk to someone knowing that you can tell them anything. My older daughter about 6 years ago started cutting she was 23 and a mother of 2 at the time. She was DX... (13 replies)
... She shouldn't be increasing in the thoughts of cutting and hurting herself. Sounds to me like she needs an increase in the Abilify or a change altogether. If she is bipolar, the increase in the Celexa will aggravate her symptoms. Good luck. ... (13 replies)

... HI~ I agree, I think the medicine depends on a lot of different things on whether or not it will work for you. My husband is BD 1, and is on Abilify. At first, it seemed like it helped a LOT, not they have upped his dosage and I am not sure it is helping at all!! He has been on soooo many though, Lithium, Seroquel, Depakote, Celexa, etc. Lithium helped him the best, but... (8 replies)

... mania because I actually want to sleep. I'm tired and when I've been manic in the past, I've been too busy to sleep and I never felt tired. My pdoc reduced my Celexa dosage and has me taking it all in the morning thinking that may of kept me awake. Nothing different. Do you think I need to go to a sleep specialist? ... (6 replies)
... What was your highest dose? I'm at 100mg so far. Something needs to change in my meds - I haven't slept more than 3 hours in 42 days now, manic as hell, hanging on by a thread. Feeling very detached and alone right now. I see my doc tomorrow - something has to change... I haven't had any memory lapses or "stupid" moments, and I have dropped some more weight (slowly, which is... (11 replies)
... As far as I know, lithium is still considered the "gold standard" of mood stabilizers. I recently had to get off of it after decades of use due to kidney problems. I really wish I could still take it (it only causes kidney trouble in a pretty small percentage of long-term users). It can be quite difficult, even miserable, to get used to lithium at first, big side-effects for a... (11 replies)
... Haven't ever tried lithium - I've heard so many awful side effects for it... Is it worth it? I guess I should ask about it. I'm still not sleeping, same problems... (11 replies)
... Thanks for the response again - very helpful! I haven't tried lithium, but I go to my pdoc Wednesday and aim to ask about it. Still haven't slept much (day 39 - ugh!) and I found out my somewhat distant cousin just got out of the hospital for lack of sleep, who is also BP. I'm a bit scared right now honestly. But your support helps, thanks! (11 replies)
