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.

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.

Bipolar Treatment


The research clearly shows that people suffering from bipolar disorder have the best outcomes with a combination of medication and psychotherapy. Psychotherapy should occur for an hour at least 1 or 2 times a month and sometimes more often during the course of treatment. Such treatment by good doctors can result in excellent outcomes. Smoking weed or hash is not associated with good outcomes.

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.

Unlikely


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.
