if you have any experience with those meds, as in you were on them or someone you know is on them and feel like talking, i'm willing to listen.

i have only been on these for 7 days now and i am not really noticing much except for the fact that when i take that zyprexa, i am OUT.

i take it about about 30 minutes before i go to sleep and i am done till is fantastic...i have been sleeping very well.

also, my apetite is unreal...i have been friggin grubbing out....i used to not eat till like 6pm cause i had to do * to get my apetite up.
2 of the 3 meds i am on has weight gain/increased apetite as a side effect.

my wife and i went for breakfast the other was awesome....i have been eating lunch and i had breakfast.

another good thing about this is that the months supply of these meds are $130.
i was self medicating with * and was spending more than that or just over that per month. now though, i can cut that out....

so, cymbalta, depakote, zyprexa?????anyone

In 2001 I was on depakote and paxil. I can't tell you which or if both were to blame but they caused me to be so freakin depressed I cut my wrist and spent a week in the psych hopital.

I know nothing about those meds. But keep taking them as they seem to be doing good for you.

From some of your posts of a couple weeks ago you are a new man. You appear to be confident, sure of yourself and much happier.

Depression sucks. Glad you're better.

cymbalta? ssri?

My step father is on depakote, it seems to really work well for him, he still gets depressed, but he does have bi-polar, no cure they just treat the symptoms. My x-wife has Sever bi-polar + other things she has taken seriquil[?] lithium, geodon, and a host of other cocktails.

When they first get on these drugs the adverse side effects usually go away in the first month, but the effectiveness of the drugs seem to wain in time, and after 2 years there are almost completely useless other than lithium.

Edit to add, I really hate that I know what I know, to watch some one take these pills only to have to deal with the mental condition plus the side effects is heart breaking.

well, according to this psych, my diagnosis is 'bi polar mixed'
the mix is ptsd so it's bi polar+ptsd


apparently, the cymbalta is an snri and the lexapro is the ssri.
i don't know the difference but i shall find out

I would love to get a hold of some lexapro. It did wonders for me while I had the free samples. My insurance wont't cover it and I can't afford paying $90 a month for it.
