I have been told in an IOP at a psych hospital that meditation can make psychosis worse.

All those other medications you have tried in the past that are listed in your signature did not help you with racing thoughts and anger?

what did depokate do?

@AspiringAuthor

I also saw in old posts you were on Metformin what happened with that?

also you said in previous posts that you could not tolerate Topomax

how did you learn to tolerate it?

I have a paradoxical response to Depakote.

If I take it with something else antimanic, say Lithium, it overdoes antimanic action. If I take it alone or with Seroquel, it makes me super creative in the culinary realm, super appreciative of the aesthetic side of culinary arts and also of tastes, which makes me want to cook festive dishes, serve them, but also eat them myself, and when I first took Depakote completely solo it even caused a very interesting, creative hallucination. This is not a typical response to Depakote.

Depakote also causes extreme weight gain, low platelet count, and at higher doses hand tremor, so I would not be able to tolerate it anyway.

I had medications that stopped racing thoughts - take Clozapine for example - but they overdid it. It is hard to find a sweet spot for me.

I learned to tolerate Topamax by reducing the dose, titrating up very slowly, and drinking copious quantities of liquid.

Thanks for asking!
