  • Perceived effectiveness for Bipolar rapid cycling: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 500 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I have only been taking this medicine just over a week and it seems to be working so far. I have experienced some very unpredictable nausea/vomitting. Its not every time I take it and it comes completely out of nowhere. Its weird. One minute I'm fine, then all of a sudden I'm running to the bathroom to get sick, then I'm completely fine again. I haven't really had any upset stomach, which makes this even more bizarre. I'm hoping this will go away with time.
