what alternative medications are out there an work as well as quetipine, I'm on a very high dosage of slow an fast release[ 600mg ] , but I am concerned about my overall health of my heart in the future , has anyone with bipolar experimented with just sleep aids, with out mood stabilisers ? can you do that with long term behaviour therapy? because it's only when I'm not sleeping my bipolar gets really really bad, but with routine , diet , exercise 4 -5 times a week after work it's more manageable.

      I take lamictal (mood stabilizer) for my bipolar and it works pretty well. I also take zyprexa at night to aid my sleep so I don't stay in a manic state and stay awake
