I was diagnosed as bipolar a few months ago after a few years of seeing psychs. Was manic when i was given diagnosis. Am currently on clomipramine, lithium and abilify and i was just wondering how people feel when they are on medication? For example i am still quite aware of my moods and experience some symptoms still. I am still only sleeping 2-3 hours a night and am extremely talkative and full of energy. But am not as high as could be because i think meds are keeping me from going higher. Is this how others feel? Is my medication doing the job its supposed to? Are you still supposed to notice your moods or are you supposed to feel 'normal'. Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated.
