Need lots of advice

Posted by danibell25 on June 1, 2002, at 20:39:19

I was diagnosed bipolar II and borderline personality disorder. I've been on Lithium, Depakote, Geodon, Zyprexa and now Tegretol. I've been researching it today and wonder if I messed up by suggesting it to the doctor. I haven't read very many good posts about it and the other things I've read make it sound good for the mania or highs of BP I not II. Bipolar II has more depression and borderlines have depression problems too. I stay suicidal almost all the time unless I'm hypomanic or in a "normal" phase. I also have serious problems with self-injury. From what I've read all the meds I've been on are good for BP I. Has anyone heard of anything good for BPII? If you have please respond. I got so desperate to see a doctor that I'm seeing a regular family doctor who of course knows next to nothing about BP or BPD or how to treat it. I can't see a psychiatrist until August so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
