ok as you probably know i have only had one manic episode. so im not sure if im freaking out or not

yesterday i was fine on waking in a great mood, then suddenly in the afternoon i was so so angry and fell out with the family. the just as quick, i was feeling hysterical, we all had a right laugh, but then my hubby said i was acting weird. i was on about buying a new car and got a loan for one, and shopping online for stuff, and talking about going out shopping at twelve at nite. i promised not to go out. i took lorazapam but i still felt excited and butterflies and sexy.

today i dont know, oneminiute i get this surge feeling of hapiness and i feel so excited then i feel snappy and angry.

i have no idea what is going on. i have phoned cpn but sheis ion holiday.#

this doesnt feel like hypomania as im not feeling particularly happy at the minute.

i feel like im going mad.

i feel like adrenalin is going through me in big surges. it is cold.

should i go along to the docs???

or take meds??

i just had an anti depressant increased the other week. is that relevant

manic episode

sounds like you're having a manic episode, advise you to contact your Doctor asap, being erratic can be harmful ??
hope you get help asap.

Out of interest, what anti-depressant are you currently on?

Anti-depressants can trigger mania, certainly. When i started on mine (sertraline) i was behaving very strangely, erratic, jittery, not myself at all for the second week but it subsided.
I think you're right to suspect something, just make sure you have some sort of support system in place incase you get out of control.

Incidentally, I went hypomanic when my sertraline was titrated to 100mg. I spent about a week in a really bad state, which subsided only slightly after going down to 50mg.

After that, I was able to continue taking sertraline for depression but only at 50mg where it pretty much does nothing. I'm still getting the usual rollercoaster ride. Since then though I've also been put on olanzapine and I've not been as high when I go hypomanic.

hi

Hi, sorry to hear your having a crap time of it, no easy answers to this, what does your medical team say about the mood swings ??
can you go back to them for help and support ??
stress does make it worse been there myself, relaxing is never easy in these circumstances, take care and all the best.
