... Thanks for the tidbit. I know it's from the Ambilify, but it helps with my depression side of my Bipolar. Maybe, I will have to grin and bare it.

I do think there is a correlation between being intelligent and being bipolar. Or at least I... (5 replies)

... Hi All! As I have mentioned earlier, my significant other has been in and out of the hospital for the past two years. Since her last hospitalization, she was diagnosed as BP by her pdoc.

... I wonder if she has PTSD since it's common for people to become angry or fearful when they are triggered by sounds or situations in their environment. I have PTSD myself and experience flashbacks whenever I hear certain sounds. During my flashbacks I also hear the voices of my abusers and can become very combative if someone tries to touch me during this time. As for the... (19 replies)

... Hey Linda! Now I'm on my 2nd week of 10 mg. But last week I forgotten to take my med at night, so I took it that morning. Well I did have a slight headache, not too too bad. I do feel a little nauseous at times, but barely anything to shake a stick at. Since I took it during the day - I felt funky until later on, then I felt better. Now I know why my pdoc has me taking... (7 replies)

... Linda, I felt a lot like you in the beginning as medication would work for a bit and then all of a sudden it would stop and during that time I had to put up with side effects I didn't particularly like (headaches/weight gain) for it to not help. I have been lucky so far (touch wood) with my current cocktail of Cymbalta; Lithium and Zyprexa. I haven't gained any weight, I... (7 replies)
