Dear freaknstyle, Welcome to HealthcareMagic!
is a serious psychiatric illness but now a number of specific medicines are available:
Lithium-- oldest, still the gold standard
sodium-- another good option
Other anticonvulsants-- like lamotrigine
Atypical antipsychotics-- like olanzapine
I advice you to go to IHBAS [Institute of Human Behavior & Allied Sciences], Shahdara-- though a Govt hospital, you will get proper diagnosis & management by a TEAM of psychiatrists & psychologists in instutional set up. Also, they also offer psychotherapy
besides drug therapy. Good luck.
