Psychiatrist Appointment: Tuesday 2nd May, 2022

Iโ€™ve got my appointment this coming Tuesday that was originally scheduled for November last year. Due to the fact that the NHS, and especially the Mental Health sector is over stretched and under resourced, itโ€™s nearly 6 months later than planned. I have still been in contact with my CMHT practitioner weekly and with startingContinue reading “Psychiatrist Appointment: Tuesday 2nd May, 2022”

Medication Change ๐Ÿ’Š

Bipolar Induced Psychosis ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿซ‚

Quetiapine: The Missing Piece of the Puzzle?๐Ÿ’Š ๐Ÿงฉ

Today, after an appointment with my GP, itโ€™s been agreed that I start Quetiapine along with the Depakote and Mirtazapine I am currently taking.
