    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Hello, I'm 36 y/o female diagnosed with bi polar 2. I am on Wellbutrin and topimax for both depression and anxiety and I switch on and off of Abilify to Seroquel for a mood stabilizer. That is my treatment and it has helped. I really needed my mood stabilizer to complete everything and to make me feel "even". Don't worry, life is manageable when you are on the right medication you'll see. All the best!
