I'm female. I'm 36. I have bipolar depression. I'm now in my depression episode. I'm on seroquel xr 300 once in the evening. lamotrigine 250 per day. aripiprazole 15 once in the evening and also respidral 3 once in the evening. I took all these medications but in vain. I took lithium but it affected my thyroid badly and I no longer take it. Are there any other medications that can help me get out of this severe depressive episode? - Asked by R Z on 28-Nov-2015 19:41:16
