I'm recently diagnosed bipolar and medicated and I've been feeling terrible and crying every day for over the last 3 weeks. I was on lamictal and geodon for the first 2 weeks now I'm on lamictal and abilify for the last week. I'm not enjoying anything in life, hobbies, eating or even sleeping. I barely sleep 4 hours a night and I'm restless the whole night. my psychiatrist is giving me a sedative to try and help me calm down. I'm beginning not to trust him because of how much worse I'm getting by the day.

    Update: my psychiatrist prescribed klonopin and it's really helped me stop crying. He told me it should help me sleep but it so far hasn't had anywhere near that effect.

    For me Lamotragine helped me think clearer and helped with anxiety

    Curious why they took the Geodon away. That’s what I’m on?

    I don't know if it was the geodon or the lamotrigine or the combo but I sobbed everyday from the day I started both together

    My new psychiatrist has rediagnosed me as not bipolar and we're looking at other possibilities but I'm not bipolar
