Talking with Your Healthcare Provider

Regular medical visits are important if you have bipolar disorder. So is open and honest communication with your healthcare provider. You and your healthcare provider should work together as partners in your care.

Your condition can affect your mood, and your healthcare provider needs to hear how you are feeling. He or she may need to change the amount or type of medicine you're using from time to time.

Ask about your condition and the medicine your healthcare provider prescribes. Make sure you understand when to take your medicine. Know what the possible side effects are. Ask about any medicines or treatments that you think might help you.

We depend on your donations.  Anything you can give is greatly appreciated.
