I'm new member, diagnosed with BP 12 yrs. Lost my insurance so I have not had meds for 8 days. I am wondering what to expect or lookout for. Medically: I have had not had a seizure, which was a fear. I am a mess. But if I can get thru the complete mental disorder I would rather try to live non medicated. My hope is that the total disorder I am feeling is a detox issue and not a permanent state. Any comments out there?
Go to http://www.pparx.org/ for the free medication program. Go to their site and they have a phone number you can call and they would be able to tell you over the phone if you would qualify for the meds you are taking. I would do it ASAP

I finally visited my doctor (Out of pocket $$) she has me on a medicine hunt. I was very surprised when she said I did not need to make appointments but to leave her messages at the appointment desk and she would write the prescriptions. So I have 2 of my medications. Thanks
