Hi guys

I been off anti-d's for a few months now and I'm no more depressed.
The psych put me on 1000mg Epillum and now 1600mg Epilum because
I'm still very manic. Sorry if this not making sense because I'm struggling to
um compute what I'm saying?

You are zombified by it.

You get used to it, after a few years.

What a weird episode yesterday, is Depakote the safest long term?
I felt much more in control with risperdal but it's abit harsh.

Going in for a CT scan on the 16th, psychiatrist wants to have a look and
see whats going on up there.

They will test your blood levels soon.

1 600mg is a high dose. How long have you been on it?

Ask for an EEG while you're at it. It's not very expensive.

8 weeks, I'm going to Addington hospital.

I have not felt depressed since starting it but I have been more manic.
