Staying on the same meds 7

I am very sensitive to medication changes.  I have tried about 30 mood stabilizers/antipsychotics/antiseizure meds to control my bipolar disorder.  Most of them gave me horrible side effects.  I’ve been on prolixin (a very very old school antipsychotic) as my main antipsychotic for about 5 years now.  The only side […]
