Type A or bipolar???

Posted by Mickie on October 22, 1998, at 13:31:55

I am still hoping to hear from someone who knows if a Type A personality exhibits some form of bipolar characteristics. As I said in my previous post, my husband is "depressed" in summers and "manic" starting about the first of September....he says the mood swings are work-stress related, but I think it's more bipolar. He is definitely Type A, is very driven and a perfectionist...has not been hospitalized or unable to work due to highs or lows. He tried lithium and was tooooo lethargic, now takes one lithium and one neurontin a day...seems to be in a stable mood now. Can anyone out there tell me where to learn more about neurontin (will it help level moods even if bipolar isn't the cause? is it for highs or new is it?....any long term side-effects known (the doctor says NO side effects, but I have read about some breathing problems) and I'm curious about the possibility of similar Type A/bipolar traits? Thanks for any and all response!
