what are peoples experiances of a mixed state?
I recently got put on anti depressants and I think its them that's making me feel weird. I was seriously depressed and suicidal that seems to have lifted. I seem a lot faster now like a million thoughts at the one time I believe my gran visited me I could sense her, hear her voice but she s dead. telling me I'm related to the queen as she is the queens sister. I feel so agitated and irritable I also want to do a million things but at the same time I still feel crap I actually feel more likely to do something to myself. just feel bit out of control.
can anyone relate to what I'm saying cause I feel like I'm losing it? does it sound like a mixed state?

my experience is JUST finding out like a week ago that Ads can trigger mania

HAD triggered mania in my case, was triggering it, every single day, along with the subsequent Crash every goddam morning like clockwork

I am now off the ADs entirely and even my voice has lowered.

ask your doc about ADs causing mania. It is a Thing. Read up on it too theres loads online.

Hello cinderbelle and welcome to the forum. I think you need to see someone soon with this reaction. I think mixed states arean't normally one aspect followed by the other, but both together. Mixed states are dangerous so I would strongly urge you to see a doc as I said.

I have had two and both times the depression was strong but the high made my inhibitions to acting on it much less strong so I nearly seriously harmed myself and had to ask for urgent help. You are reacting to the anti depressants and that is bad - in my opinion. Please listen to me on this.

The cause of your current state is the pills you've ingested. A mixed state is being both totally exhausted and mentally hyper at the same time. That's one example. It is very uncomfortable. Perhaps you are bipolar because bipolar people often become manic from anti depressants. I have bipolar and cannot take anti depressants. It doesn't help you to try to identify your current state as being a mixed state. It is NOT the state your doctor would want you to be in. It is not a normal or stable state that you are in. You must tell the doctor what you told us here on this forum.

Thanks guys. It certainly isn't a comfortable experience it is horrible. I seen my support worker today and she suggested I see gp or go to a and e but I don't want to bother them. As long as I'm getting some sleep with sleepers I don't think I'll go really high as that's how I get high with no sleep. I just got to keep going till next Friday and hope I don't get worse.
