ARGH, I just stated lithium again with a new dr and I explained to him that I go toxic easy. (Ihave been toxic before)He didn't believe me. I was .8 one week and the next I was 1.8 I am SOOO sick, I am a college student and have missed 5 days so far. My birthday is this weekend and I cant even get off the couch. On a good note, I dont feel depressed or manic just really really sick.... what do I do, how long will this last. My doc didnt really give me any advice besides drink lots of water. I NEED to get to school tomorrow but the nausea is incapacitating. HELP!

hi all, this is my first post. Dealing with severe depression now for the last few weeks after 3or4 months of energy and wonderful creativity. I’m 55 and been labeled bipolar II. Just been back to the psychiatrist and are now trying Lamotrigine and bupropion. Each time now seems worse, if that’s possible. Haven’t worked now for two years (used to be a pilot) I know if I wait long enough...
I've no idea whether this is widely known in the US."Babies exposed to valproate medicines in the womb have a 10% chance of developing physical abnormalities.And they have a four in 10 chance of developing cognitive problems, such as learning disabilities and autism."http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-41324751
