  • Not personally, but I know someone who does. She is on 2 antipsychiotics for the Bipolar and an antianxiety for the anixiety issue. It could take months or years to find the right combo of meds or the first ones you try could work within a month or so. The person I know is on Lithium and Geodon for Bipolar and Clonopin for the anxiety. It all depends on your body and how severe of a case you have of either disorder. Make sure that you are also in therapy, meds are not a good fix alone. You need to learn how to deal with your disorder because meds don't always do the job on their own. Good luck!!!
