Hello, my name is Michelle, I live in Woodland Hills (Los Angeles, CA).

I am 45 years old, over all good health with the exception of a few diagnosis.

1. bipolar disorder and take medications.  Can my psych meds affect my bladder?
2. hypothyroid and take medications.

I have been taking medication for a UTI.  I have been prone to UTI'S over the years.
I saw a couple of Urologists, one said, I have Intestital Cystitis and the other said, No, I don't have I.C.

My question: I need help finding a "Urogynecologist" who specializes in female urology in my local area.

Los Angeles, Ca

My insurance is Medicare.

Thank you and God Bless

Hi Michelle. I am a bi-polar as well, but I am what they call a rapid cycler. I have been off of my meds for about 3 to 4 weeks now, and I am doing great. I know this may sound weird, but all I did was call KSBJ(a Christian radio station in Houston, TX) talk to a man named Dwayne Allen and pray to God with him. Ever since I did that. God has allowed me to be not necesarily perfect, but functionable and I don't have the doped up feeling Depakote ER and Lexapro had on me. And yes if you have been on whatever bi-polar med. for long enough there is a possibility it has affected your bladder/urethra. I am unaware of what you take though so you would have to look it up and contact your doctor about the possibilty of that happening. I know that Lithium has caused my mom to have tremors, hypothroidism, and blurred vision. I will keep you in my prayers and I hope that you find what you need to be okay and to get fixed or healed.
