Bi-Polar man and sudden relaps
joelore posted:
Hi,[br>[br>I am on both Lithium and Lamictal for Bi-Polar syndrome. I am also on Celexa for depression but am weaning off of it and weaning up on Requip. That started about 3 weeks ago. Now, 3 night in a row, I find everything, even the slightest noise get me angry. I feel like the Bi-Polar syndrome is taking over again and I do not like it. I cannot seem to control it. Could the Requip be the main factor in this? My Dr. only told me to split my Lithium and Lamictal up and take half in the morning and half at night. What, given the current changes do you think could be causing this?

Thank You,

why requip? i've never heard of it used for depression, so i checked it out on rxlist and it is meant for parkinsons or restless leg syndrome. it can cause mood changes, anxiety and depression.
