Does this sound like slight bipolar?

Hi guys
My phyciatrist said I have a mood disorder but didn't specify what. I go though depressive episodes , high episodes and normal episodes. I noticed when I go through the high episode I don't sleep very much at night (3 hours). I'm just after going through a high episode for about 4 days and didn't sleep much throughout the 4 days, I was jumping from one topic to another, taking fast , joking around a lot and generally feeling on top of the world ! I have since come down slightly but I'm more functional and not feeling depressed so I would call this my "normal " episode.im on 40mg of prozac and doc wanted to put me on anti phycotic but I didn't take it yet.
What do ye think ? 0

Prozac at 20mgs gave me hypomania that lasted until I came off it. Maybe that is something to consider as adding an antipsychotic may only be necessary if you stay on prozac. Antipsychotics are nasty drugs so I would consider that prozac might be causing the hypomania before taking them.
