Suicidal: No Bipolar Disorder Medicines for 10 Days
Here are 3 videos recorded between 23rd & 24th July, 2018 ; about a year after starting the new regimen. It consisted of, at the point in time:
- Lexapro: 30 mg
- Wellbutrin: 300 mg
- Strattera: 75mg
This was the 3rd regimen since the Bipolar Disorder triggered in patient in early 1990 after his father's death.
But it was the first regimen that worked on the patient. He had not been given any SSRI before this regimen
Both Lexapro & Wellbutrin can NOT be stopped abruptly. Its withdrawal makes patient suicidal. It's generally tapered over a period of 1 to 3 months slowly, to avoid suicidal risk.
The patient couldn't arrange fund to fill his prescription.
This video was recorded around 10 days after abruptly stopping Lexapro & Wellbutrin.
