How do you know if your bipolar meds are working? I'm on aripiprazole. Have been for about a year, but i don't really know how i'm supposed to feel. I just want to hear what others' experience is with it.

      I have some days where i feel level now, and still experience depression. She finds both odd... Seems to think i should either never be level or never be depressed

      What was the difference though? I thought i noticed a huge difference especially at first, but my therapist thinks i'm still too depressed (granted, she didn't know me before meds)...to the point she's not even sure i'm actually bipolar. Is it supposed to get rid of depression or just reduce the symptoms? Is it weird to still occasionally deal with suicidality?

      we noticed a difference within a few months on vraylar, I would check in with your doctor.
