I ask because I am schizo effective with 3 diagnoses one being bi polar and what I term my manic phases comes in waves of energy and anger and sometimes happiness.

I hear voices I think it is bi polar schizo effective currently I am on anti deppresants and I think I need to be put on mood stabilizers cause it makes the voices worse cause I think I am manic right now.


Any ways I am calling my doctor monday

Clearly I have a mental illness but the 3 diagnoses are depression with psychotic tendencies bi polar schizo effective and schizophrenia pretty sure I ain the last one as I have only one symptom of it auditory hallucinations so I think I am down to 2.

I am becoming more and more convinced I am bi polar with a pre disposition to a depressive phase which is why I didn't recognize it.

But What they term manic is really how I think I feel on anti depressants like I could kick thors ass

i'm pretty sure they will put you on antipsychotics. works both on mania and schizo. good luck and stay safe! mood stabilizers are good too, but more for prevention of mania/depression.

Sounds like you really need to see a physiatrist. For me doctors GPs haven't really had the authority to make major changes to my meds. Anyway good luck
