The next meeting of West Lothian Bipolar Group will be on Thursday, 9th August (7-9pm) at Bathgate Partnership Centre, South Bridge Street, Bathgate EH48 1TS. We are delighted to announce that Ommar Ahmed (Senior Clinical Pharmacist at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital) will join the group for the first hour and will be delighted to answer all your specific questions on medication, how it works, side effects, which medications shouldn’t be combined etc. You don’t always have time to ask your Psychiatrist these detailed questions but they’re vital to your wellbeing and Ommar’s presence at the Group will give you a really good chance to learn much more about the medications that help you manage your bipolar. As always. no referral or appointment needed – anyone with an interest in bipolar (including friends, family, carers) very welcome to attend… and it’s free!
