Bipolar, Information and Resources

Do You Have Bipolar Disorder? I Need Your Help!

I am working on a comprehensive list of medications used to treat Bipolar Disorder. I want to create a go-to resource of as many of these medications as possible including the classes of drug, their method of action, both common and uncommon side effects, links to more detailed information and other pertinent info. I want it to be a resource of sorts to get an overview of what is commonly and uncommonly prescribed. I often spend time combing through numerous websites trying to find an overview of certain medications and seem to have to dig through quite a bit of information that is too detailed for what I am looking for.

I am looking for a quick list of medications that any of my readers who have been treated for bipolar disorder (any type) have ever been prescribed so I can cross reference with my list. I don’t want to leave any out.

Anybody reading this who can help I would really appreciate it if you could leave your info in the comment section. Thank you!

  1. I’ve been on too-many-too-count, but a really clear way is on infographics found on, in the search just say: bipolar, or bipolar meds or infographics. They have stats and are clear to read.

  2. I am on Lamictal 200 at bedtime, Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal) 100 in the am and 300 at bedtime; and ablilify 2.0 mg x 1 day alternated with 2.5 x 2 days. A weird cocktail for sure but it is working for me. I don’t know if you want to include the 75 mg. benadryl at bedtime for sleep.

  3. I’ve been rxed: zoloft, buspar, welbutrin, effexor, xanax, klonopin, seroquel, pristiq, topamax, abilify, concerta, latuda, trazodone, melatonin, …I think that’s it. lol I’m only 22!!! So many drugs! Currently on effexor, latuda, topamax, trazodone, klonopin, and melatonin. I was diagnosed with depression for everything before seroquel but my dr kept me on some of them after the bipolar diagnosis. I hope this helps.
