Its not so much usual that medication becomes less effective as such, as that Bipolar Disorder can change, and treatment may accordingly need to evolve. If you feel some diminishing of benefits from the treatment, the wise thing to do would be to see your shrink for a re-assessment of the situation, and a discussion of possible revision of your medication
