  • After being diagnosed with bipolar, my psych said “lithium is our preferred treatment…..” I suggested he could take as much as he liked as I considered I was not a good candidate for it and thank you but no.” Valproate has really helped my bipolar symptoms, that and psychological treatment for my extreme anxiety….. The man had never lived an “ordinary” day in his life, from private school to uni to med school……no idea about the challenges of the average persons life, what could be considered normal or what kind of lifestyle would make lithium a reasonable drug to take. Glad that as crazy as I felt, and probably was, I did my research and had a good GP who knew me and listened.
