My finance is in PT school now. He has been recently been diagnosis with bipolar at the age of 28. In his second year of school he began to feel as if he was "suppressing" certain memories. His stories became more extreme as if he our apartment has been wired and so on. He came home one day and pretty much snapped. The next day I took him to a therapist and put him on Seroquel 75 mg, clonidine 0.1 mg 1-2 tabs and vit d 1000mg (d/t low vit D level 13 was his lab result). He is also on Adderall 30 mg bid (he was placed on this medication since 2009) when he was undergraduate school. He goes through his moments of ups and downs because he messes with his dosage because sometimes he will be up late studying and feels as if the meds make him to drowsy for his exams the next day. So this week he has had numerous exams and seems as if he has only taken his meds maybe twice this week, but he says he has been taking them. He has become delusional and has began to think the school is after him and won't let it go. If he has missed a few doses can this trigger his old thinking pattern? Also he has never had been like this, can thinking like this all of a sudden trigger at the age of 28? Since he has been diagnosis with this he has been a tad paranoid, but as long as he takes his meds he can function and not pay too much attention to his thoughts unless he has an exam, which stress can trigger increased paranoia. It's so odd to me because we have been together for 9 years and lived together for 4 years and this behavior literally came out of know where.
