So have you ever taken mood stabilizers (i.e. lithium) or just antipsychotics?

You might ask your doctor for a trial of a mood stabilizer just to see if it has any therapeutic effects.

I've taken a few antipsychotics (olanzapine, seroquel and risperdal) and while there was some benefit, I found lithium seemed to address my issues more directly and with less collateral damage.

If you stopped taking antipsychotics would you have any psychotic symptoms or would it just be mood symptoms that return?

Personally, I feel that I am some mixture of unipolar, bipolar and ADHD. I know it is not currently believed that you can have unipolar and bipolar but I think it is possible. Mood stabilizers help me, but alone they are simply not enough. They bring down the volume in my brain but they don't change the color of my mood. Small doses of antidepressants help change the color of my mood. Yet, even with these, I can't concentrate. A bit of ritalin helps, but I'm finding that PEA seems to be (fingers crossed) helping mood and concentration. I'm still adjusting things so I can't make any conclusions.
