Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I'm sorry to hear about this situation
1. In Bipolar disorder, an individual can be affected severely or mildly, but it does not decrease intelligence, the persons level of functioning is affected by the acts they carry out during mania, and the lack of motivation the experience during depression
It is not reasonable for a doctor to tell a patient to only take their medication when they feel the need, that does not make sense, the symptoms can come at any time, and the medication is used to prevent the symptoms from starting, so the medication should be used consistently
Can you see my replies?
Are you there?
