None. From 13-19 I was extremely overmedicated. At my worst I was taking 18 pills a day, but average was 4-6

( the combo I took the longest was lithium 2x daily, lamictal 2x daily, seroquil, Xanax, and Prozac. )

At 19 I discontinued my medication and learned how to control my symptoms with therapy, exercise, and a very supportive* partner.

I know that it's not the right option for everyone,honestly I think I was misdiagnosed sometimes, but the side effects of the medications I was on we're doing more harm than good IMO.

I take Lithium and lamictal. I take Klonopin for anxiety my bipolar disorder is why I am anxious since my manic episodes are bad and happen even on meds. They are not as bad so the meds help.
