I definitely have had a roller coaster ride with this. All I can say is do whatever you can to stay on your meds. Everyone is different some people have worse manic episodes then others. I just had one that I almost lost my family over. 3 Yr manic episode. If you would like to talk more let me know. I can tell you what works for me.

Welcome to the board, bitzygirl!

I would suggest that you contact http://www.pparx.org/ to see if you qualify for free medication while you are waiting for your disability insurance. Or, you can just call them at 1.888.477.2669 and they can tell you over the phone if you qualify or not. It sure beats the repercussions of having to go without your meds, you know?
