    Yes, I know a bunch of teens that have been diagnosed bipolar.

    I am wondering if your son or daughter has ?

    Have you found a good support network and doctors?

    It's my daughter, she was diagnosed about a year and half ago. My concern is with the medication she takes. She's gained so much weight and I worry about side effects.

    Side effects can be difficult to deal with - no doubt about it!

    Is your daughter doing well? Is her medication keeping her stable?
