Hi Loutfy,

For bipolar disorder medications prescribed include:

However, these medications cannot be obtained without a prescription from a doctor and discussing which one is best for you is better left for you and your doctor.

I'm sorry, Loutfy. I can tell how frustrated you are with all of these medications and their side effects. The thing about these medications is that they take at least 2 weeks before you begin to see any stability in your mood--as hard as it is, please continue taking them for a little longer and then if you still feel like they aren't helping your moods then contact your doctor. 

All the best!
