Does anyone take these? If so what were the side-effects like?
I take lamictal and abilify.
You need to tell us what you're on to help you. There are a slew of them out there so you need to let us know so we can help you.
Right now I'm on Zoloft and Zyprexa/olanzapine.
It's for ....well I'm not even sure what it is, some kind of psychotic episode from using amphetamines.
Forgot to mention, they don't prescribe lithium here, last time i went the guy sugested some others to me. I though the anti-psychotics would take care of it but it's only taken care of some of the symptoms like the anti-depressants.
I still have racing thoughts, euphoric feelings followed by crashes and so on.
zyprexa.. bleh. it's an antipsychotic, whatever that means, but it's used as a anti-mania mood stabilizer as well.
it works and does the job but all I did was sleep and eat on it. Plus it's been found to cause diabeties and is currently the subject of several lawsuits on that.
I'm pretty lucky that way, I don't get the hunger or tiredness but it's not doing much for the mania.
