Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • They can't totally control my bipolar. I ahve tired so many medications. I just recently dropped Welbutrin and Lamactil. I got to the point where I couldn't think, concentrate or remember. It took me twice as long to do my job. I was falling asleep driving at work and driving.

    I've gained 50 pounds in the first 4 years of my bipolar treatment, then lost 60 pounds. I've gained 20 in last year and am unable to exercise because everytime i excercise I crash. I get so aggitated and angry and I can't think. I stuff my face withi food. I get a headache. I feel like I'm going to explode.

    Everyone just wants me to take more medicine or the latest is that I havae Central Sleep Apnea and Narcolepsy (neither of which I have had in the past and I am still only 145 pounds).

    I've been diagnosed with hypoglycemia a long time ago. No one has every told me that my meds might make this worse.
