Customer Question
I have bipolar disorder...

I have bipolar disorder and take usual cocktail of meds. I tend to depression

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?

Hi yes. Well controlled now and under psychiatrist for over 20 years.But I battle waking in the morning. I will set alarms but snooze them forest hours and only really get up at 10.30-11am or later. Then read and stuff late at night. Finding it hard to break cycle. Get up early

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Psychologist should know?

Not really. Oh underactive thyroid and stress generally triggers depression and sleeping to avoid doing things.

Greetings.

Welcome to the site.

I am a Psychiatrist and i believe that i can help you with your query.

So what i understand from your question is that you are having excessive sleepiness in the morning time or perhaps better would be to say that you are waking up late ? Is this right to say ? Do you have anything else to add , if yes please do so ?

Please mention all the drugs that you have been taking ?

Regards

That's correct. Mornings sleepy and bit down - very hard to get up and moving. I don't use a sleeping pill - and when I do only half. But I often toss and turn a lot because of arching legs/ sore hip. So quality of sleep not always that good. Sort of spoken to GP about hip pain, legs (poor circulation?) and we've not really got much progress on that. Not really so bad as to need usual intervention.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
