    I agree with Mary :) Give the meds a chance, see how it goes. Then report it back to your doctor, good luck :)

    Stay away from xanax and give those meds a try. I'm addicted to xanax and struggling to kick my addiction. It's very difficult and dangerous.

    Give the meds a try (takes about a month total for them to really work) but if they're not working or something is off let them know ASAP so they can adjust them. Everyones body is different so let them know and you will find the right mix/strengths/etc and it will probably help. Xanax is meant for panic attacks/anxiety. Hopefully now, you will be fine... or at least better :)

    to be fair, lithium is known for better results/relief than xanax

    stick with it

    Xanax is an highly addictive, short term anxiety-relieving medicine. It won't do anything to prevent/treat your ups and downs. That's what lithium do instead. Lithium is an mood stabilizer that work for bipolar in the long term. Xanax is not for the long term at all.
