How’s it going?
I hope you’re doing well.
There’s an interesting thing with bipolar disorder.
It’s about medication.
Too many people think they can manage it themselves, without their doctors (psychiatrists).
They want to take less medication, or they want to take more medication.
Taking less medication is like wearing a size 10 shoe when you really need a size 12 shoe!
You can see how silly that would be. You wouldn’t do that, would you?
So you really can’t let your loved one mess around with their medication, either.
If they’re having problems with their medication, they really need to talk to their doctor about it.
They can’t just decide to mess around with it themselves.
That’s like I said above, like buying the wrong size shoe, or the wrong size clothes.
In my courses/systems below, I talk about how important taking your medication is, and in the right amounts, the right dosages, what to do if you feel that there’s something wrong with your medication, etc.
But I always say to check with your doctor if you feel there’s something wrong with the medication you’re taking.
SUPPORTING AN ADULT WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
It’s not like there’s nothing you can do if you’re unhappy with your medication, it’s side effects, the way you’re feeling or behaving, or whatever.
You can always talk to your doctor about it.
If you don’t trust your doctor, you need to get another doctor.
But messing around with your own medication is very, very dangerous.
If you don’t take enough, you could go into an episode.
If you take too much, you could DIE – you could have an overdose!
If you don’t like the way your medication makes you feel, you can tell your doctor, and they can change your medication.
They can change your dosage of the medication you’re on.
They can change when you take your medication.
They can do several things that maybe you haven’t even thought about.
But just don’t – DO NOT – mess with your own medication by yourself.
