I have a few more concerns. I agree that another opinion may be necessary because my son's diagnosis continually changes. I believe that he probably had undiagnosed ADHD in high school (he is currently 29); he also took illegal drugs, predominantly marijuana, and then also suffered post-traumatic stress from a life-changing college incident. He never suffered depression - his bouts of mania seem to be panic attacks that have gotten out of control. Wouln't a complete physical be in order? The doctor only checks for his level of depakote. The medicine has helped, but is not the answer for healing. My son has tried talk therapy and EMDR, but has had little success. Do you think that hypnotherapy to get rid of emotional garbage might help? Also, proper nutrition and natural supplements - what would you do if this were your son?
