BiPolar (II) and SleepingHello,
I am a 21 year old male and I have BiPolar(II), ADD and tourettes. I currently take 2x600mg/day Lithium Carbonate, 36mg/day Concerta in the morning, and 25mg/day Seroquel at night.
Recently, my depressive episodes are getting worse. I feel like I'm always crying inside and it hurts. I haven't been sleeping properly cause I cant stop thinking to fall asleep. My mind just beats me up I get so tired cause I cant shut down. I sometimes stop eating cause I don't feel hungry and then I binge eat when I do.
I figured I would ask for suggestions here. I always feel like I can never make people understand my feelings cause they havn't read my manual. Suggestions welcome. Thanks, Lucien (21/M/Canada)

Manic depression, to give it its old title, can be pretty complicated to treat Homoeopathically, as it is usually caused by more than one Miasmatic predisposition, but it is entirely curable.
I would personally recommend talking to your doctor about coming off Lithium Carbonate as soon as possible, as this is an EXTREMELY damaging drug, and will not rectify the problem, merely damage the brain over time, as it is readily taken up in place of the beneficial minerals and metals needed for its proper function. This damage can then take a long time to rectify, and I have had many patients where this has been the case. It is not a pleasant substance to be ingesting.
I would also advise against taking Belladonna in such a high potency, as not only does this remedy have a pretty severe mental picture, more importantly, it is only an acute acting remedy, and will not rectify the underlying condition at all, only act superficially. I have also found it to be only very rarely indicated in bi polar disorders.
