    I'm bipolar I and I've been rapid cycling for a year and a half now, 8ish cycles in that time.

    I'm currently being treated with two mood stabilizers and one antidepressant.

    But I'm still rapid cycling, it would seem. Are there any tricks to slowing this? Anything I can do outside of medication? I want to go back to university but I don't want to just fail out again :(

    The thing that works for me are breathing exercises, that a Prozac as it helps with that more than other antidepressants.
    Honestly though I don't know if the breathing exercises will help with the cycling but rather help with how you feel during the cycles.
    Sorry I am not much help, hopefully somebody else can help more than me. I would for sure say something my pdoc and maybe a change in meds is needed.
