In brief: Unsuccessful treat

I'm sorry you've had such a difficult time finding successful treatment.
However, bipolar disorder is highly treatable. I don't know what has been tried, but antidepressants do not help depression with bipolar, per recent research. Also, Lamictal may help bipolar depression. Are you sure we are treating bipolar disorder? Please keep trying. If you are dissatisfied with the care, try elsewher.
