Default Older, bulimic and Bipolar, new meds new here

Soooo Been doing this for a LOoONg time, my Bulimia has morphed into a I need to be thin to be cool in school ( I was the picked on one, anxiety ridden one... Taking care of my Mother and Sister.. Other issues not discussing)... to fit into my Dress Blues because being Cross Fit like body type in the 90's wasn't cool for a chick ( esp in the Military as a Marine) ... or I need My thighs not to touch, to it is my emotion control now.....

I am on Latuda now... I had a HORRIBLE stay at another in Patient treatment center that messed up my meds.... Anyone have any experience with Latuda, and topomax? I don't feel better... They had me on Depakte in the Treatment facility and took me off my Lamicatal cold turkey and my Cymbalta Cold turkey.. And I am all kinds of f'd up... My Job is suffering.. I am suffering.. I feel more Manic... But at least I don't feel like sleeping all day but am back to B/P to control the anxiety??? Any thoughts?

Hello Chloe Dancer: I'm sorry you are having this difficulty. Med changes are always difficult, in my experience. I'm afraid I can't comment with regard to Latuda or Topomax. But I noticed no one had yet replied to your post. So I thought I would. Hope things begin to look up for you soon.

I'm 60 and have dealt with bulimia and anorexia, major depressive disorder and ADHD for 45n years. I find Wellbutrin to be the best for me for depression. Xanax for anxiety, abilify for who knows what and adderall for the ADHD.I tried a lot of different medications over the years and they seem to work the best but "the best" to me is being able to get out of bed in the morning.
