So, after a 3 week stint of really bad depression my hubby went to a new pdoc that totally changed his meds. They said that his cycling has to do with being on anitdepressants--they tend to make a bipolar that has cycling cycle more. So he was to up his Depakote and start Seraquel. Anyone know anything about this Seraquel? This is a rather scary time for me because I know that there can be chaos with meds changing. He will no longer take 2 antidepressants with the Depakote like he has been doing for the last year. And they said it could take weeks for the Seraquel to get to a level in his system where it will be effective for him. Any advice? I'm nervous about this change--although the pdoc seemed so confident that this is what he needs for his particular cirucmstance (bipolar depression still being a big problem). What if this doesn't work? Where are we then?

On both my Ipad and Iphone the title and most of the OP are overlaid with the banner, advertisements, the date in blue, and various other stuff that should not be there. Short posts fare a bit better.Does anyone else have this issue? Is DS going to fix it? Very frustrating to not be able to read the OP's anymore!
in the hospital the dr bumped up my lithium from 900-1350. He regularly asked me if I was experiencing any side effects but I didn’t notice the tremors till yesterday. Then today I was loom knitting and the tremors are really noticeable. My needle is not hitting its target as quick as it should.
