Medications That Manage Bipolar Disroder
...or, at least medications that finally manage mine.I am finally on a medication regimen that is working. Here it is:
Finally out of depression! A little freakazoid-wired and anxious (although almost completely off caffeine), but I am functioning. Currently I am able to:
get up at some point in the morning
take care of my family throughout the day
go to work teaching college
work on my blog and other freelance writing projects
BTW, What Not to Do: The other night (after a few glasses of wine, which I should not be imbibing with bipolar), I accidentally took my daytime meds instead of my nighttime ones. I was awake all night long. Then I figured out what I did and, at 5am, took a half dose of my nighttime meds and slept a little.
Now all was well.
Hope you all are out there balancing too!
