Bi-polar meds

Hi doc

My mother is bi-polar, she does not want to drink her meds because it makes her feel like a zombie and it also made her pick up alot of weight, is there other meds available that she can take?Thank you in advance.

There are many different meds, and doses, and combinations, that could help someone with buipolar disorder. But this has to be discussed with her treating / prescribing doc, to consider alternatives, taking into account the side-effects troubling her. And she must always weight these side-effects against the greater risk of serious depressions and manic episodes, without meds
