  1. I'm so glad you and others post these types of links. I saw the article about the "new med that might decrease anxiety and stabilize mood." I'm bipolar and anorexic and sent that article to my psych. He's going to ask around about it and we may try it in the future. Who knows?

Unfortunately, I had some intolerable side effects and my doctor had to take me off it. But I still keep waiting and hoping that one day something will help turn off that e/d voice in my head. Keep posting this stuff, please! It's valuable information.
