Dear Doctor(specialized in bipolar
I have a situation with my daughter (29 years old).
My daughter was diagnosed with bipolar 8 years ago.
My question is either related to bipolar medication or who knows it is related to "what?"
My daughter is taking lithium (Lithium carbonate ER) 1800 mg and oxcarbazepine 900 mg. Since last November, she had trouble with regurgitation. I started reading about regurgitation and found that "Rumination Syndrome" describes the symptoms best.
Meanwhile, she had all the test for the stomach functions and everything was normal.
In the middle of January, her doctor prescribed deplin (15 mg) and then increased to 37.5mg now. Regurgitation stopped for a couple of weeks, but it did
come back on and off. It is very uncomfortable and miserable for her. I know that her dosage is very high in lithium and other medication. Have you every run into this kind of conditions?
We want to find out what to be done.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
