Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- 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???

She was prone to bladder infections and we went to the dr. for that, labs showed high calcium, within one week I had to take her to the emergency room, within one day she was on oxygen, within three days she was in the ICU intubated and unresponsive. She remained in ICU for 4 days had renal failure and died two days later.

Sister takes over 16 perscriptions but the ones mentioned are severe.. due to being bi-polar, and severe agoraphobia and anxiety with depression..is this now her life?

But for the past year I have developed osteoarthritis in my thoracic, si joints, and lumbar. I get alot of muscle hypersensitivity and pain. Can any of this be due to long term effects of seizure meds?
- Depakote er affected by grapefruit
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.
