Someone please give me some advise. I have bipolar 2 and in the past I was on epilim and seroquol and it worked sort of ok, except for the huge weight gain. Last year November I went for a couple of ECT sessions and the doc put me on Geodon and molipaxin. The first 2 months I didn't really had any side effects bothering me but then in Feb I had to stop using the Geodon as I had constant spasms in my face, biting my jaw and theeth, just could not handle it. Then in March the molipaxin caused my breasts to be so painfull that I could not thouch them, felt like they were being removed with a knife, I lowered the dosage and it got a little better but still too sensitive so I stopped that. My doc now started me on Lithium and I was so hoping that this would work as I am tired of changing meds all the time. Now I look 6 months pregnant. My stomach is so bloated and it physically feel like my stomach is stretching. It is beyond uncomfortable. And the seroqoul now suddenly make me urinate more and I don't need that as I suffer from an overactive bladder and then lets not mention the restless legs. It seems the longer I use medicine the more the side effects come out. I am so frustrated and and this moment I am going through a manic episode. The manic episode statred the end of March so i feel a bit frazzled. Will the bloating go away? Has anyone used Tegratol as a mood stabiliser? Any other suggestions on meds?
