Tony :

Hiya, My name is Tony. Im a Mental Health Nurse. May I answer your question for you?

Tony :

Ok, I can see you are offline. I would like to request some more information from you before I answer your question.

I will assume throughout that your diagnosis of Bipolar II is correct.

Has this been your first episode of depression? How long were you depressed for before you sought treatment?

Which medications are you currently taking? How long have you took them for? What are the dosages? Have you tried any other medications?

I will start to formulate my answer when I receive your reply. I from the UK but living in Australia so be aware of the time difference, My response may be delayed. Allow me time to complete my response for rating my answer.

Thanks in advance,
