Handling prescription costs isn't easy, I know. But its important with a condition like Bipolar not to go off the meds except on expert advice, ( and there can be some unpleasant symptoms related to suddenly stopping such meds )and you should con sider seing a psychiatrist at a state / provincial hospital or clinic or medical school, where you can receive suitable meds either free or at a cost related to your income and finances.
They might not always have the most recent and expensive drugs available, but those are only very rarely needed to treat you well. Once things have stabilized from the bipolar point of view, you can work more effectively at sorting out your financial problems, and maybe then resume seeing your previous shrink.
