can I have Ambien induced mania?
I have been feeling really awake for the past 4 days. I am on some psych meds for depression/bipolar, but have never had an episode like this. I am wondering if being on ambien for about a year can have induced this. I kinda like being so up, but also feel tension in energy I can't release. Any thoughts are welcome!

I'm not to sure to the answer to your question, but I used to be addicted to Ambien and was on it for 2 years. It used to make me really hyper and 'manic'. I don't have Bipolar nor have I ever been manic but Ambien pretty much messed me up. It drastically changed my behavior and it was something I only fully realized when I stopped it all together. All I can say is that it can change your mood from personal experience.
