My brother is bipolar but the worst and out of control issue right now is terrible depression and grief/guilt after losing his baby over a year ago during childbirth. He is close to giving up on his life.No manic symptoms nor happiness for almost 2 yrs.
He was just taken off zyprexa and zoloft and was prescribed geodan and effexor along with the valium, buspar an ritalin he's also/already been taking. These meds together make little sense to me, seem to contradict each other, God knows the interaction and side effects to worry about.
He is all by himself across the country from home, no consistant mental health follow up.
My biggest concern is again, the validity of these meds together, and what the heck interactions to be looking for.
