Medication not working....

Recommended Posts

My current medication regiment doesn't seem to be doing all that it should. Currently taking lithium and abilify for bipolar disorder. I know I need a combination of meds, in the past lithium has worked, but this is my first time taking abilify with it. I continue to feel more depressed and just want to sleep all day. Not sure if its the abilify or the lithium or just bad combination. Anyone have any experience with this?

Do you know that often these meds take a while to work. How long have you been taking the lithium in particular? If it's less than a month I'd be patient. If more you need to report that to your doc and maybe other meds could be found that work for you. In cases where lithium works it helps to moderate depression and mania. Not to eliminate them completely, but to make them less severe.
