I think I have it. Can it go in fits and starts? At times I feel almost normal, but then I really am not. I know it is the medication change that has done it, but didn’t realise that until earlier today. This last fivish days have got progressively worse. It is like being in The Matrix. I was told to stop the Lamotrigine I had been on for about 9 months, tapered it and stopped on Sunday. Two weeks ago doubled the Pregabalin and Vortioxetine. I have never tolerated antidepressant, but was on it as the a psychiatrist said it would work well as I was on the mood stabiliser. It was the mood stabiliser that made me really depressed, which is why it was stopped. So then I have double the antidepressant with no stabiliser. I have called the crisis team twice today. Nothing anyone will do until Monday unless I am going to hurt myself. Any advice? This is nothing like the hypomania I haven’t had for a long time, but am used to. This started off with me feeling good - at last, I thought. Has all gone way way too far the other way though. I did call MH team on Friday, saying I was concerned, they were going to email the Psychiatrist for advice. That seemed reasonable then, but I hadn’t envisioned getting worse and Monday feels a long way away.
