  • Fill your time with things that make you feel good... Check your diet. Adopt a good sleep hygiene... you may not always sleep but get into a bedtime routine. Ensure that you talk out stress with people you trust. Learn to love life. Pills are a tool not the total answer. Good Luck

  • I went through the same-no response to meds. Finally after 10 years of this route I made changes in my lifestyle-cut out sugar ( as this can cause mood swings), make sure I exercise, more when manic or depressed, regular sleep/wake schedule. It is much harder than taking meds, takes lots of work at times but it has made THE difference in my own life.Michelle
