    I fully agree with you, only time will tell. I know when I go through major med changes I’m usually inpatient in a psych ward for at least the beginning of the change from going off and going on because it can be dangerous. For me it’s hard to stay patient and things usually get worse before they get better, so I hope your psychiatrist can help make sure you’re safe even if you can’t see yourself as things are. I’m also on a large amount of medicine for Bipolar, many anxiety disorders, and eating disorders. I’d like to keep reading your journey through this new change in your life because I can relate a lot.

    Interesting article, however Lamotrigine is Lamictal, not Effexor.The generic for Effexor is Venlafaxine.

    I am also trialing Rexulti for bipolar. I have been on it for 2 weeks now and really like it. The negative side effect is weight gain. I am STARVING all day with this medication. My psychiatrist said this is normal for this medicine. My manic episode seems to have subsided.my spending is almost non existent (which is big for me ) my mind and body are not constantly moving and it’s a nice change.
