Hi everybody I was wondering if you could help? Today I have been diagnosed with bipolar type 2 and OCD by my psychiatrist. I have been given two options for medication Quetiapine or lamotrigine. Now I know lamotrigine can cause a nasty rash and has to be started slowly. And quetiapine can cause weigh gain (which I have had trouble with when I was on mirtrazapine) I just wanted some friendly feedback from bipolar people to see what their view is on these medication. I am trying not to research bad side-effects and look at the good reviews. I have also been told that I need to go back on a contraception which is very difficult as I have been off my pill for a year now because me and my husband were trying for a baby. Me and my husband have come to an agreement that I need to get my mental health sorted first before we think about having a family. I am just feeling very confused about everything and worried this is going to change my life for the worse. Help?
