I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder nearly six years ago, and have had a fairly stable few years. But this last year has been sheer hell, and I can't seem to get any joy out of my shrink. I was on lithium for a year, but my shrink decided it wasn't having enough effect to be worth continuing. Now I'm just on Seroquel and Citalopram - and my shrink told me on Tuesday to stop the Citalopram because I was going a bit manic - only I don't think he was actually listening to me, because I told him that I was actually having a mixed episode, was self-harming, and having serious suicidal thoughts. Since stopping the Citalopram, I actually feel as though I'm going completely crazy. Has anyone had any similar experiences? I just don't know what to do!!
