Hi. I want to thank everyone who replied to my other thread. i really appreciate it. Anyway i am 22 and i was discharged from hospital in Glasgow 5 weeks ago after a 6 day stay. My diagnosis was "Recurrent Depressive Disorder - probable Bipolar Spectrum".I was on Citalopram 20mg for 8 months before i was hospitalised and this treatment has been continued.Anyway for the past two weeks or so i have been having racing thoughts like scenes from movies and music and ideas going round my head a hundred miles an hour and i can't concentrate and it gives me trouble sleeping at night at times. Also my speech has been really fast and pressured and i can't help it. I have also felt more energetic than usual and i haven't been needing much sleep. I get like 4 hours and i don't feel tired.I have also had two occasions where i heard voices in my head like my own voice but i couldn't make the voices out because it was all jumbled. It was quite scary. I see the psychiatrist on the 31st of March which isn't long. I am going to wait until then and tell her how i have been feeling.

What do you think is wrong with me? When i tell the psychiatrist what i have wrote here do you think she will put me on different medication or diagnose me?BTW my Mum is Bipolar i believe.Thank you very much for reading.

Anti-depressants can often cause someone with Bipolar to go high. If you continue to feel like this, I would ring your pdoc and get an earlier appointment.
