I’ve only been taking medication for nine months and the mood stabilizer for only two of those nine months, so I feel it’s hard for me to say if I would get immune to it. I’ve had a lot of people tell me that they’ve taken it for years and have remained stable, which is what prompted me to try it after fighting it for so long. I think since it levels out the chemicals in your brain it’s not something that you build a tolerance to or against.
