Tell me the treatment for bipolarity

yes please. My partner suffers with bipolar. He has been on a cocktail of drugs, including rivotrol... this has indeed been his Nemesis... difficult to get off... after very violent spats, including with me, he visited a psychiatrist who put him onto serrapress, tegratol and also the rivotrol... after a fall out with said doctor , he went to another psychiatrist. she put him on Epilim and serrapress and also to stay on the rivotrol. he had begun having seizures . Thing is he seems to have isolated himself, sleeps much, almost to escape, very emotionally destructive, says it is the medication. I pride myself at seeking out as much information as possible if i need to live with and understand a certain aspect. Bipolar/ epilepsy are two of the said i need to understand. He drinks enormous amounts, comes across as being almost Narcissistic ... another one of the aspects i have taken time out to research... i depseratly need to understand this, these elongated days of self destruction, non communicative, and not taking responsibility... the alcohol exacerbates this combination... i am at a loss and terribly sad at the spiral of events that have eventuated as a result... isolation... he is no longer violent...however seems to love finding a fight ... he never has memory of his events... i am at the end of my tether... ready to leave... but love him totally and this is an aspect of him... how do i stand in judgement of him as he is ill,??? or for that matter leave him as he is ill... i am screaming please help me

I note your query has remained unanswered for a very long time. I feel sorry for you. You certainly needed a lot of support and assistance and your partner should have been managed under the watchful eyes of a commited Psychiatrist. I hope things have improved but would certainly like to know from you about the current situation. Best Wishes.Never Give Up!
