Good to Seek Help

It sounds like you are very concerned about your mood. It would be an excellent idea for you to seek out help, and it would be best to set up an appointment with a mental health professional with whom you could discuss your concerns.

FDA approved maximum

Dose needs to be adjusted to discover optimal individual patient dose. I always find it misguided to use the FDA approved dose range as Gospel in clinical practice. Your 100mg is below maximum that has been studied by drug company but it does not mean it is helpful or safe to go higher. You need to work closely with your doctor to figure out the right dose for you.

The only way to reliably answer your question would be by making an appointment with a doctor, preferably a psychiatrist with experience in diagnosis and treatment of mood disorders, and having yourself thoroughly evaluated. If there is no such doctor in your area and a doctor's visit requires lengthy travel, you should look for a psychiatrist who uses telemedicine. Telemedicine is a method of patient evaluation through an audio/video link, usually with the help of such common computer software as Skype or ooVoo. It could be very effective in psychiatry, where patient travel is either difficult or impossible. Many insurances reimburse health care providers who use this method at the same rate as the office visit. If you need more information, do not hesitate to contact my office at 877-483-2071.

I have type 1 Bipolar disorder,i rapid cycle.I haven't slept in 68 hours,is there something i can take OTC ? I can't afford my medications.

Answered by:

Challenging question

It is well-known that insomnia is a trigger for mania and rapid cycling, hence it is important to combat that. Even though sleep MD's don't recommend antihistamines for sleep, they can work and are OTC. The bigger issues: 1: you need to be working with your MD. 2: some drug co's make their products available to you, free of charge-ask your MD how. 3: your MD may have samples of certain meds.

I am diagnosed with Dandy Walker Variant - Can this cause me to have mood swings even to point of depression/bipolar disorder? I feel like I do.

I believe you are referring to a cyst in the cerebellum. In severe cases, usually in children, there are problems with muscle movement, coordination. Mood disorder, such as depression/bipolar, is not thought to be caused by the cerebellar malformation in Dandy Walker Syndrome.

How often should I use baking soda and hydrogen peroxide on my teeth?

Answered by:

Baking Soda, H2O2

I don't necessarily advocate this although I an aware that this has been around for a long time and some dentists do recommend it. In my opinion, I would ask the General Dentist or Periodontist who you use and can evaluate the health of your gums advise you.

Baking soda will not whiten your teeth. All it will do is clean off the surface debris making your teeth appear whiter.

Baking soda is

in many dental products. But baking soda is abrasive, so if you were to use it straight very often it could erode enamel. Consult with your dentist. Take care.

Not good

There are better ways to lighten your teeth. Baking soda can make your teeth feel good and clean, but this is because it is abrasive. It will wear or abrade your enamel. It is not a good way to lighten teeth. Talk to your dentist about the many options available.
