... Hello everyone, I have been diagnosed with BP II about a year ago and although things started to become clearer and my mind drifted back into reality somewhat, I am beginning to notice that I feel depressed almost all the time.

... I could be a poster child for abilify. I am a rapid cycle, and haven't had a serious episode in over two years since I started abilify, knock on wood. My cycles are very mild to non exisitent, and haven't missed a day of work due to bp. I had tried every mood stabilizer on the market for 23 years before abilify, and this drug works wonders for me.

... That's great! Sounds like he may get the IEP at the end of the school year, and geared for next year. Not sure what the 'laws' are in your state, but many states prevent children from being held back more than one time in the same school level (i.e. elementary, junior high, etc). So if he got held back in 5th grade, laws may prevent him from being held back in 6th as well. ... (24 replies)

... I started on Lamictal at 15 and it's a wonder drug for me. Takes a while (usually) to get to a therapeutic dose, but with a seven-year-old, it might be faster because his therapeutic dose is probably smaller than that of a teenager...Just my two cents. Paige (7 replies)

... Hi Strssd Mom. I hope the Lamictal works well for you son. It has been a miracle drug for mine. If he doesn't stabilize after you get to the target dosage you might want to try cutting out the Adderall. We keep our son on ******** for quite a while because it really did help the adhd symptoms. However, it really exasperated the bipolar symptoms. It wasn't until we stopped... (7 replies)
