I Have been in hypomaniac state for a long period ( bipolar III according to Akiskal evaluation) Iam just givinig you information given to me by my doctor. All the drugs I mentionted before, are andidepressants. They seemed to worsen my situation, thats why I stopped taking them (Made me have mixe episodes, that is, severe depression plus hypomanic episode.)
So, I was prescribed Xanax for 2 weeks, calmed down a bit and then - my doctor, being sure that my case met the criteria of bipolarity, added Topamac.
Suicidal thoughts, so on.
Yes, I ve been seeing my doctor on a regular basis and he is trying very hard to help me. (He is the 3rd I ve see so far!) No improvement.Its over a year now, too many drug coctails, too much effort.....
Please, if you can think of something, ANYTHING , that could make a difference, I would be gratefull.
p.s sorry for the mistakes. English is not my native language
