I told the casworker I stopped taking my medicine because she had asked me when I took it last. Husband told ner he doesn't think I need my medicine that I have been fine without it. I guess I have been med free for about a couple months....I thought it was one month but I think it might be a little longer than that. I am also begining to doubt my diagnosis since the only real time I got manic was when on lexapro an SSRI for depression. I was suicidal and the pdoc at the time uped my dose and I became paranoid of everyone and everything including the docs diagnosing me. I had a manic episode blacked out and ended up claiming a chicken leg was the key to the universe. I don't really recall going manic on my own. What do you all think. Do you think a medicine induced mania can automatically label someone as bipolar???
