Meds?

First off, hi I'm new. My name is Lexi, I'll be 19 on april 11th and I have a 15 month old girl.

I was hospitalized off and on for about a year when I was 15. I've been on oodles of different meds, and found one that actually worked, zyprexa.

I stopped taking the pills once I got pregnant, because they don't know the effects it has on babies.

Now that my little girl is 15 months (we are slowly pulling away from nursing) I want to get back on a medication. I'm torn between taking Lexapro again, since I know it already works, or going through a sea of new pills again.


Anything you ladies can reccomend?

Lexapro threw me into a manic episode and I've been told that's a common problem wth bipolar disorder. I now take Lamictal and it works well to keep my moods in order while keeping me from being depressed at the correct dosage. I take 200mg a day.
