So I was diagnosed as bipolar when I was about 12, about 13 years ago. I've been on and off medication with varying results but none of them what I'd call ideal. My question is should I take the medication they will probably want to prescribe me? I have been off medication for nearly two years now. I don't want to be back on medication. I am usually prescribed some very serious/strong anti-psychotics. The side effects are usually horrendous. My brother, who was diagnosed with ADHD, was able to "treat" or managed his ADHD through diet alone because he hated being on his medication. I supposed my question is probably more along the lines of; Can I expect my diet change with the Primal diet to help me manage or treat my disease? If so how can I explain this to my doctors. I have an appointment on February 9th and I really want to be able to walk in with facts to back up my reasons as to why I don't want to take those drugs and why my diet will allow me not to. If you all think maybe I should take them or that this diet can't really help with my disease I am fully ready to accept that as well.
No announcement yet.
Medication, to take it or not to take it?
