> Wow, this sounds exactly like me! Is she still currently not taking meds? Do you know if she had any successs with meds in the past? With the symptoms described above, was this a BPI or BPII diagnosis?

BPII with possible BPD.

Currently, she is taking Topamax. In my estimation, it is doing very little for her. She probably would have done well on Risperdal were she not to develop akathisia. For the first week after discontinuing the Risperdal, she was perfectly normal. She then gradually entered the mixed state that she suffers with today. My guess is that another AP like Seroquel would have been helpful. I mentioned to her Trileptal, but her doctor is not terribly receptive to making any changes. She probably seems asymptomatic during her visits with him. Trileptal + Seroquel might be worth exploring.
