Health And Wellness Tips & Information

Has anyone successfully treated bipolar disorder with alternative medicine, or know of anyone who has?

I am sick of the sugar cravings and weight gain, and would like to try alternative medicine or herbal remedies if possible. I am currently taking an anti-depressant and a mood stabilizer (Seroquel), and it seems to help, but the effectiveness is short lived, and then I have to increase the dosage again.

I have known people that did that but unfortunately it did not work and they ended up worse than before. They actually ended up on more meds than before. I personally would not try it. Talk to your doctor though, there may be an alternative to the meds you are on that does not cause the side-effects.
