i was diagnosed with clincal depression about a year ago. within that year my family dr sent me to a therpist who diagnosed me with bipolar (thats when i met you guys). well my family dr tried all the medicine she could (lexapro, seroquel) none worked and between my dr and therpist they said that i needed to see a psychiatrist. so i did last thursday..... now he is saying that he isn't so sure that i am bipolar he said that it just might be clinically depressed. so he put me on effexor. i have the manics, the high spending, the depression etc. the psychoiatrist said that depression can cause that too. well i am just bewildered. i feel like a yo-yo. did anyone else go through this?
