People who struggle to take their prescribed bipolar disorder medication regularly can now receive assistance through a unique Internet site dedicated solely to this common problem.
"As far as I'm aware this is the only site on the Internet whose sole concern is addressing the all-too-common problem of skipped dosages or failure to abide by doctors' prescription orders," said David Oliver, the creator of the site.
The site, http://www.bipolarcentral.com/whymeds , not only explores the most frequent reasons why people with bipolar disorder do not take their medications regularly, but also provides effective arguments to counter those reasons.
"This site represents a one-of-a-kind approach to reaching individuals who believe they don't need to take the prescription drugs as directed," said Oliver.
The site is written in a letter style containing a list of the most popular arguments for not following through with prescription drug usage. For each reason listed, the visitor to the site can click on an icon and read the counter arguments.
"The site does more than de-bunk the reasoning," said Oliver. "We offer solid, practical suggestions and alternatives to the problems encountered. The mission of the site is to try to get as many people back on track with their medication as possible. I'm also hoping that people who support and provide care for people with bipolar disorder read this letter."
When the visitor clicks for more information regarding this concern, another window opens that explains the possible side effects with easy to use remedies that will lessen their severity, Oliver explained.
Bipolar disorder is a mental illness caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. It is characterized by unpredictable mood swings that range from manic and euphoric highs to episodes of deep depression.
