> He treats people, but his brocere says "pedicatric, and adolecent" - hinting that he belives in treating hyperactivity, bratty, and alot of medications that are used in children. Not anything like Lithium. He put me on 15mg of Ablify, that is anti-psychotic dose. I couldnt not take it so i took 7.5, still motivation is hingered. I dont belive at all i need an antipsychotic. Lithium, Topamax, or something else, something like Lamictal would be best.

i'm not a doctor, i don't know what you need. i don't even really know all your sypmtoms.

however, my pdoc now that i see treats many people with bipolar and is adamant about using mood stabilizers such as topamax and lamictal. i would say as long as your diagnosis or symptoms warrent (showing depression and manic behavior) that a mood stabilizer request is beyond reasonable and should be honored by your doctor. especially if you are not feeling well on antipyschotics. and if your doc still demands AP, request both. moodstabilizer and low dose AP. go from there.
its a start.
tell him you'll stay on (what you say 2.5 or 7.5 abilify) and Lamictal or which ever MS you want to trial.
i am on a MS and an AP. now actually the AP works better for me than the MS, but i like Topomax cuz it helped a little with weight gain from zyprexa.

you can always search for a new pdoc in the mean time but please dont leave yourself without a doc. just incase of emergency.

best wishes
b2c.
