I have a question about my thoughts that never seem to quit. I just had a baby a few weeks ago. To make a long story short I was also recently diagnosed with bi polar disorder as well. What I originally believed was just post partum depression I now believe is a mixed bi polar episode.
I have been having the most irrational thoughts that seem to plague my all the time. It's like my mind is being tormented with thoughts of people I know and love dying or my house catching on fire or even crazier that my house is haunted. It's making me absolutely miserable and I feel like I am going insane. I have seen a doctor who has prescribed me Latuda and Lamictal. I started out taking Zoloft but it made me much more manic which is how the bi polar diagnosis was made. In addition to the racing thoughts, extreme anxiety I am also severely depressed to the point I am not functioning well. Before the Latuda I was on Zyprexa which made me suicidal.
My question is could the Latuda be contributing to the racing thoughts? It seems to be making me much more anxious. Also, is there any medication that seems to help? I have Klonopin that my Ob gave me with the Zoloft but I have not asked my Psych Dr about taking it with the Latuda and Lamictal because he always acts like my questions bother him..
