As stated before it is imperative to continue on your prescribed course of medications each and everyday for the rest of your life. Those medications may comprise of mood stabilisers, antipsychotic medications and for me also antidepressants. I have Bipolar 1 disorder and my medications are as follows:
Epilum, Seroquel, Zoloft and my emergency medication…. Zyprexa (which is a antipsychotic medication and THE most powerful mood stabiliser). If I feel like I am on a sliding scale to being depressed, or perhaps being over stimulated and heading towards a high…..I hit my Zyprexa heavily for several days to a week – which balances back to normal.
