At a young age i became fixated on fantasy and would go into my own little fantasy land. For example i would die and marry a computer game character and all the game characters were my real friends and i would be with them in heaven. I would get really hyperactive at times and start jumping up and down with a sock and would be fantasising about fights and all sorts. I developed OCD which i have been diagnosed with. Well at 18 i had a psychotic episode, i heard voices, had delusions and went nuts. I was put on the antipsychotic olanzapine up to the maximum dose which i'm on now. The psychiatrist did not diagnose me with schizophrenia or bipolar. I was put on antidepressents prozac and went insane in a good way, euphoria, bouncing of the walls, talking to myself pacing back and forth for hours discussing how great my life is and how incredible i feel. Listening to music and breaking out in spontaneous dancing and head banging. I came of the antidepressent and developed depression. Now i'm back on them citalopram, euphoria, spontaneous dancing, weird mouth movements, random smiling, bouncing up and down while smoking a ciggerette while pacing back and forth. It feels great but the euphoria can get too much. Is this normal for an antidepressent? or am i showing signs of bipolar or schizophrenia?
