No, he dose not know that I stopped it. Bipolar meds just don't work for me so I am all done with them.

I'd really encourage you to touch base with your doctor about what you experienced and to ensure your taper off the medication goes safely and smoothly, @mrser52. I think that doctors get that medication side effects are sometimes too much to tolerate.

Do you have access to a support group for patients with bipolar disorder? If not, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) may have local support groups they can connect you to, 800-950-NAMI, info@nami.org.

What other ideas have been given to you by your doctor — or have you seen in your own experience -— for managing your symptoms?
