Okay,

As some of you know... I take Depakote for (supposed) bipolar 2.

Over the last week and a half or so, I have been experimenting with my dose...

Some days I take my full dose (300 mg every 12 hours)

Other days I take half the dose (300 mg every 24 hours)

The results as follows:

On full dose: Lucidity: 3/10 A-holeishness: 7/10
On half dose: Lucidity: 5/10 A-holeishness: 9/10

So, should I take my 2nd tablet for the day TODAY?

abi,

Why would you want to take it?

Why would you want not to take it?

From my past experience with experimenting with doses, I did not learn anything! I only wasted energy in analyzing. Yet, I was successful only with regards to my thyroid medication since this was the only medication I had regularly and I felt changes in my personality after two hours of taking the pills. I put my doses and how I felt in a spreadsheet, with the help of hubby. It was helpful to me...I realized that the best I felt was when my TSH lab work showed the same exact range for me.

Sometime we may start feeling better and change the dose and go backward.
Or, stay on the dose and go backward!

Make a log of what you take on which day and how you feel.

Good luck.

Have you tried to take less and treat the irritation in a different way. For me, I cannot drink coffee...it agitates me and I may become snappy and rude depending on how I also slept the night before!

When I really want to avoid a confrontation that I know is coming closer and closer :D, I take 1/8 mg of xanax. Am I right?? Yes, I have mg pills...cut it in half...cut the half into two halves!
