I have been bipolar now for 4 years, sine I was a teenager. And have had two severe, psychotic breaks. Today my doctor said I wasn't on enough meds (100mg serequel, 450mg lithium) to have an impact and he thinks I'm having a placebo effect while just getting the side effects, ei: weight gain, and sedation. He said after reviewing my files he thinks the only reason I had psychotic breaks (delusions)was due to me taking an anti depressant, zoloft and from smoking a lot of pot back than. I am scared to death of ending ALL my meds, I haven't had a psychotic break in over two years now while on low dosages of meds. He claims any serequel under 300mg does nothing for bipolar. I want to believe him and be "normal" without any meds, but I can't handle another break, I lose months of my life to them. Please someone, anyone what do you think about this???
