Getting Over Bipolar Medication Withdrawals

IMG_9204While bipolar medication withdrawals are a real bitch, it makes ‘normalcy’ feel like pure bliss! I suppose that is the true silver lining I have found in having bipolar disorder; appreciating ‘normal’ times way more than I would had I not ever had bipolar.

I would like to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart, for all of your well wishes, ‘good vibes,’ and prayers. The love pouring in from allover were so heartfelt and got me through a rough time in my life. So THANK YOU!!!

I am still in the process of weaning off that particular medication but am no longer going through that personal hell.  Alleluia!  My doctor finally decided to give me a small dose more of the med to even more slowly wean off of.  And that turned out to be the trick to getting over the awful withdrawals.

All is good in my world right now… but of course, having bipolar symptoms forever lingering over my head, I am only waiting for the other shoe to drop. But until then, I’m soaking up feeling well!

I’m curious, how have you all gotten over your medication withdrawals??


I’m so bipolar, and unashamed.

  1. I don’t ever go off of them…it seems more are just added; however I work full time and I am functional. I just get crying spells…

    1. You have a point there about more meds just being added. By getting rid of one of my meds I’m hoping to replace it with a “healthier” option, if there is such a thing. Thank you for sharing!
