Rapid Cycle Bipolar & Champix #stoppingsmoking #Medication
My psychiatrist and GP both urged me to quit the cigarettes 🚬. The tar from the cigarettes is metabolised through the liver and as I’m on Depakote which is also metabolised by the liver, the process of metabolism of the Depakote is slowed down and can lead to Depakote toxicity and possibly liver disease.
I had quite a thorough discussion with my GP and the Stop Smoking Team from the NHS before I got my prescription today. I’m guessing that due to the fact that I was assessed so thoroughly and that I was not in a poor frame of mind, they were prescribed.
Does anyone have any experiences with these?
