Here is a big question: do you have an idea of which of the meds you have taken has helped the most, completely without reference to any side effects?

Can you specifically say how you felt (besides nauseated etc) on each drug? That would help.

And when I say helped I'm asking specifically about mood levelling effect. It's tempting to ask which one made you feel the best, but that might be hypomanic... so maybe not the best question. Sedation could really interfere, so during your most awake moments on any of those, which seemed the most mood-levelling, and the most likely to stay stable through a stress such as rejection?

Not in any way saying you would want to go back to them, just it would be good to have a direction in which to turn (as you've tried a couple classes of drugs).

In a general answer, bpd responds 'in general' to either antipsychotics or mood stabilizers or anti-anxiety agents or ssris or a combination, and bp II usually responds to mood stabilizers. But each person is a true individual so only on the basis of past response can you make a prediction.

Luckily you've already accumulated some evidence on what class of drugs might help you the most.

Good for you to forge ahead with your GP. No time like the present.... maybe by the time you can see the pdoc you will have found something that makes you feel good and stable, and will only need the expert to oversee it for the long-term.

Also, do you have a psychologist too?
