Hi Mary! I have been assessed. It was narrowed down to symptoms of depression because when I’m in a manic state I feel great (except for the part where I’m irrational and not sleeping, but other than that…)

I started taking Lamictal about six weeks ago and as that dosages increases the Lexapro and Klonopin decreases. I’ve actually felt good this week, not depressed, not manic, not in discomfort, just good. I’m not sure how long it will last, but instead of questioning it I’m opting to be grateful.
