I suffer from Bi-Polar (I) which as far as I can tell is almost completely due to brain chemistry. I have ordered some books on the subject, which should arrive in the next few days.

My Dr. found out I was taking Prozac 80mg and sugested a plan to switch over to Effexor XR. I had already cut down to 150mg from 300mg but I didn't realise the Prozac whould amplify side-effects. I seem to recall my Dr. telling me to continue the Prozac, but I was wrong. I had taken Effexor XR 300mg with Xanax .50mg to stop the side-effects previous to meeting the current Dr.
Effexor XR had stopped working at about 6 months and I didn't see the need to continue at one year.
I meet the current Dr.(PCP) because he was on the insurance plan I had. He gave me a test to take and a copy to give to my spouse for evualtion of me. Both tests came back matching. Soo hear I am.
He sugested Bi-polar and prescribed Zyprexa. After a few months I found what it feels like to have peace in my life.
My Wife devourced me, I lost my job and I had to move out (not in that order). luckly, I had to Children on a regular basis. That too became a proublem when my now Ex-wife moved to NC. Which brings me to depression. Zyprexa dosn't word as a anti-depresent soo my Dr. had to do something.
