My counseler who is very up on vitamins that should be taken to help bi-polar disorder says that omega 3 and vitamin d is a must.  I take them both every day with my medications.  The vitamin d is susposed to help control the depression side of bi-polar.  Melation is also susposed to help you rest at night, I have found that this works for me, they have 3,5, mg and extended relief.
It probably takes time for our body to get used to the vitamins - depending on what kind of vitamins they are.  I have read that aside from taking vitamins, we must watch our caffeine intake.  I used to drink heaps of colas which would make me more anxious and unable to sleep at night, I have now limited the drinking of colas to morning and afternoon (none in the evening) and only maximum of 3 cups a day.  I suppose that might apply to coffee or iced teas or anything that has caffeine as well.
