Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. I would recommend looking into using either Lamictal, Ziprasidone (Geodon), or Lurasidone (Latuda)

Those were also tried as recently as the past 12 months now that I hAve radical records opened.

Okay thank you, ***** ***** not mention those medications in your regimen. Unfortunately any other medications that can be tried can cause weight gain as you have tried all the weight neutral medications for controlling Manic episodes. Can you tell me exactly what medications you have tried and their doses? Also are you willing to increase the Seroquel even though it may cause weight gain?
