Me & my meds

I was correctly diagnosed with bipolar 2 and put on Depakote (and various other medications) too. My reaction was similar and eventually I found a good doctor who prescribed me a better medication for me. It took around 5–6 years to finally get it right, but I think it’s helped overall. All the trial and error made me wary of trying different drugs, but I’m stable and a productive member of society now.
