Dr. G, thank you for your response. You are right as for the treatment of NMS, the problem is that all the doctors I have seen always want to pair meds. I was just given a new script for Trilleptal but was told that because of how my bipolar acts that there is a chance that it will not help me at all. I am very confused with all of this. I was on Lamictal and taken off of it with my doctors blaming NMS.
That's why I came to this community, I need advice and help understanding everything. Should I even try the new meds, should I not. I do not know what to do anymore, what I do know is that I need to get this under control. Please help if you can.View Thread
Thank you for your welcoming, I have been looking into natural remedies as well as seeing a therapist. It is very hard though, there are just something's that you cannot keep under control. Thank you again.View Thread
What do you do when you are bipolar and have neuroleptic malignant syndrome? All the doctors I have talked with have said there is nothing they can do to treat me because of NMS. Would really like to find a way to control everything and get back to my self.View Thread
