A MyDepressionTeam Member asked a question 💭

I'm bi-polar with a severe anxiety disorder and in recovery so my psychiatrist has me on Buspar and Zyprexa and it doesn't seem to be working.

Lithium

A MyDepressionTeam Member asked a question 💭

My doctor checked my Lithium levels and said they were "extremely low." He put me on 300 MG of Lithium XR 3X/day. He did not diagnose me as bipolar but everything I've read indicates that that's what this medication is prescribed for. Does anyone know something I don't? Also, I am perpetually EXHAUSTED!! I also take 2 MG of @Xanax 2X/ day, in addition to @Celexa. (40 MG 2X/ day. I feel like I'm walking in my sleep! Functioning is almost impossible! Any insight would be greatly appreciated!!!
