- Bipolar 2 since 1975. recently d/c'd lithium. looking for a treatment that will not make glaucoma condition worse (1 answer)
I am trying to determine which medication to use now that my 40 year successful run with Lithium is over. (The kdneys say it's time to quit). However, I do not want to increase intraocular pressure by using a medication known to increase said pressure. Most importantly, I do not want to lose my livelihood or cause my family and friends unforeseen difficulty due to ineffective medications. I have little faith in the alternatives and see Depakote, Geodon, and Lamictal as poor seconds at
best. Any suggestions???

But for the past year I have developed osteoarthritis in my thoracic, si joints, and lumbar. I get alot of muscle hypersensitivity and pain.

I have taken Depakote ER for since 2005 for epilepsy. Once stabilized many years ago seizures and auras have not been bothering me. Until I recently ate three grapefruits over three days. After a few days, when the grapefruit cleared my system, the seizures and auras ceased. Therefore, grapefruit does affect how Depakote ER acts on your system.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 years ago):
If a person smokes 7-8 cigerettes a day will they interfere with the affectiveness of the medication.
From this study (4 years ago):
I felel sleepy, and tired a lot. My thoughts are still disorganized. I have problems trying to clean house, organize my papers, paperwork and books. But I still am able to do my crossword puzzles. My eyes are sensitive to light. I have problems trying to express myself now. I used to be more extroverted in my speech and such, but since I was switched over from Geodon to Loxapine I am now much shyer and quieter. I do not like this. I prefer being a motor-mouth than being so much more quieter.
