Husband has had a stressful year and takes lamotrigine 100mg but couple of days ago hes gone manic and won't take his medication. He even went to the doctor and got zoplicone but refuses to take it. What do I do hes pushing his family away. Hes driving everywhere, drinking alcohol, very bad mood swings, hyper, 100 different jobs and not finishing them, shopping sprees and not sleeping maybe 2 hours a day. He was diagnosed in 2018 so that's the last time he had a episode. Its draining me and I gave 2 small kids and working while he is stopped going work and spending all his last wages and out all day all night. It lasted 4 months last time I think he stopped taking his medication. I can't even talk to him as worried he going to go crazy at me and il make it worse. I know that's hes not him but it makes me so angry whst he does and says but I have to remember his brain is taken over. Any easy tips on bringing his mania down and how long does it take.
