Recently I read a book called, "Why Am I Still Depressed?" and feel like it describes my life. No super high ups like bipolar 1 but the irritability, anxiety and energetic, relentless self-flagellating racing thoughts? They're there. My moods are MUCH better since I've been on prozac and wellbutrin but I am struggling to find the right mood stabilizer for me. I tried Abilify recently and it made me feel too flat/bored. Excruciatingly bored. With my pdocs approval I went back to my old prozac and wellbutrin.
What kind of meds have you tried for Bipolar 2? I am curious about other peoples' experiences and will probably ask my pdoc to Rx me something else to try. Please share with me here what you have tried and your experience.
I have been really struggling here with moodiness and have done fairly well for the past several years on the meds that I'm on.
Group hugs to all out there who are struggling. Having mood issues makes parenting really tough sometimes. Gah.
