Margi, Ouch is good, but no solutions just understanding.
I'm trying to find a coorelation between bipolar and cluster.
What it takes is each of us to objectively look at our lifestyle and personality between episodes.
I never thought of myself as depressed, but always new I was hypo-manic. It wasn't until I went into deep depression that I (and the doctors)put the two together.
As I said, after I started Depakote between episodes, when the episode began, it was like relief.
It was something tolerable and SHORT-LIVED. That was the first time in 20 years that there was a change in the cycle.
This year the cycle has changed again, and I am trying to figure out exactly why. It is very interesting to note the changes in my 12 hour depakote levels even though the dosage was increased.
I will find out more as I increase the dose.
I just would like everyones input about who they are without cluster, and if and how much depakote they have tried.
BTW, OUCH doesn't address either with anything in-depth. Can you make that happen?
