I need a little help; Ive been Bipolar since the dawn of time (or as far back as I can remember). However I was only recently diagnosed. Im usually able to control some of this; as long as Im not under stress. About the time the housing market came apart, so did I. My G.P. put me on Zoloft and it has helped just a little Im taking 200 mg. a day, however it only takes the edge off, it doesnt stop it and at times has no affect at all. Im new with this Psyc. so were still at the beginning stage of trust. Sorry at times I just ramble on. So here are the questions; what types of medication are more appropriate to control my depression? Are there any suggestions in dealing with my Psyc? Probably the most important is the long term side effects. Thanks for the help, zebra4life

I remember how much I thought I had bipolar, I honestly still go happy sad happy sad happy sad every once in a while, not even realizing I’m doing it half the time. It runs pretty bad in our family, just any mental illnesses, really. My parents both take medicine, my mom’s bipolar and so is her dad, my grandfather. Things like that. I remember telling the doctor how my mood would go like that...
Ok, I know its been AGES since I have been on here... but WOW! What happened ?!?! LOL! Are some of the older people still on this site or what? :)
