Medication

For some people who are bipolar (like myself three years back) taking meds is in their view 1- admitting to others that they are (as people think) mentally ill and have to live with it through their entire life. 2- Have to accept all the side effects meds have especially in high dosage. 2- are treated by others differently and pitied especially by close relatives. And those are very heavy on their shoulders, believe me.
I do myself take meds but small dosage and in limited period and with the help of my doctor and when it is needed to help me overcome uncontrollable situations.
Stopping the meds is not a good thing at the initial stages and I do not recommend that at all. And one has to learn how to recognize critical situations with the help of a doctor before limiting them.
There are positive sides to being a bipolar and I know THERE ARE. It is not only a subject of giving false hopes.There are many aspects and factors which have to be put forward but I talk about them depending the feedbacks by the readers

Some of the most successful, creative people ever to walk the earth have been victims of Bipolar Disorder. Bipolar is not who you are, but an illness that you have. With a balanced routine of sleep, exercise, medication, supplements and a great support network of trusted doctors, family and friends, you can live a very productive and normal life. I have managed for 2 years now. Wishing you wellness and balance. Marianne

It is only xanax, not alcohol, which can offer suitable relief from the anxiety pangs. Other than alcohol, that is likely to make people violent and aggressive instead of providing suitable cure for their depression and anxiety, you should opt for the anti-anxiety pill xanax only when it has been prescribed by a doctor. To obtain relief from anxiety, depression and related disorders, Xanax alcohol is never to be sought after as mixing xanax and alcohol can unleash tremendous harm to your health. http://www.xanax-effects.com /
