How many medications are you on?

It would be interesting to find out how many people are on more than one medication for their mental health.  I am currently on 3 medications, Depakote and Lithium for my BP and Zopiclone to aid sleep.  I realise this is a very basic poll as it does not show how many different types of mental health problems are being experienced but depending on the response this could lead to a further poll about diagnosis etc.

Often needed more than one mood stabilizer in the past. I believe that's very common. The Clonidine is serving as a mood stabilizer as is the Zofran even though they are for other purposes as well. Same with the rhodiola for depression. I've already mentioned the Phase II experimental antipsychotic glycine. Did not count the muscle relexants and the Klonopin helps with this but since it was originally prescribed for anxiety disorder it helps on standard psychiatric symptoms as well. The Klonopin has been 10 years now so that's the only consistent. Been through almost every known mood stabilizer and probably will keep trying them until I find the right match. The Clonidine patch has evened things out but it does run out after a few days so its not ideal.
