A question for those with rapid cycling mixed episode bipolar
I know that's a mouthful lol. So, I am dx'd as Bipolar I. I take Seroquel xr 600mg viibryd 40 mg and klonopin 3x daily.
Now, since starting on this cocktail over the summer, I have gone from having week plus long depressive episodes and about 4-5 full manic episodes to having a 2-3 day mixed episode every week, with no sleep for a few nights. I've been in and out of the hospital and on just about every med out there except saphris.
Does this happen to anyone else on meds for bipolar I, my doc says I'm doing a lot better but its days like these and yesterday that I am really struggling. I've told her about this and she just says to keep working through therapy. My doc is good and I trust her but, but I ham having a very hard time with rapid cycling.
