Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Ryan, Thank you for your answer. With the symptoms I have given, if Lamictal is not the best solution, can you give a few medications you might advise that have worked in patients you have treated? We have three bipolar children, and medication is the only treatment that has worked in our other two children. Counseling did nothing when they were in the state that our daughter Alyssa is presently in.
Thank you ever so much Ryan! We do have an excellent doctor who Alyssa meets with and has done so for the last 2 years. The doctor has diagnosed her with bipolar disorder and has her on Zoloft. He is willing to try other medication since we are only getting very minimal results. He has hoped with time she will get better, but that is not happening yet. The reason I went online this morning was to try to get my daughter more help. I want desperately for her to get her life back. I was hoping for advice that might be a better solution for her condition. Our doctor as well as my husband and I are willing to try anything to help her. Maybe your advice for counseling might be what God is wanting us to try. I believe that God is sovereign, I love Him with all my heart, and I know He wants to help us. I just want to do my part to find the solution. I have been praying the whole time you have been reviewing my question that God would give you wisdom in helping us! Our situation needs some guidance at this point in time. Thank you for listening :)
Thank you Ryan. Hope you have a blessed day! I will give you an excellent review. If a possible medicine possibility to try comes to your mind, feel free to email me the suggestion. I know it can take years to find the right medication or combination of medications.
Relist: Other. We have tried the answer that Ryan gave with no positive effect. Ryan was prompt in answering my original question, but in my 2nd question, I was hoping for medication suggestions to help our daughter.
Thank you so much. This is the advice I was looking for. God bless!
Thank you again!! Shelly
