So I've been away from support groups in general for about 3 or 4 years including this one, but I used to be a regular here on D'S, when I was on and off of meds and really struggling.
I'm doing better as I've finally accepted treatment for bipolar 1 disorder. I've been taking haldol for about 2 years now and haven't been hospitalized or had any major symptoms save for this nagging monthly depression...i become a mom about the same time I started taking haldol and no problems with depression during or immediately after giving birth but now I think it is time to start with an antidepressant sinvce I am not being the best mother when I am sympotomatic...i manage the basics but I think my kid deserves more and so so I.
My question is what should I look out for when adding an antidepressant and any stories you have about how antidepressants have helped you personally.
Thanks in advance
Hey D.S. Fam! Hope everyone's doing as well as can be expected today. So I went to see the new doctor. She was awesome, very attentive, very sweet. I also had to to see another dr. I agreed to let them try me on 300 mg of the Lithium. I have never been on Lithium in my life, but I was diagnosed with treatment resistant major depressive disorder or possibly bipolar 2 so they're thinking that...
I lost my desire to go on.....seriously
