It's the same thing - Not Otherwise Specified. Since not everything fits a clean diagnosis, they always have to leave an 'out'. In my case, I don't have mania, per se; my psychiatrist feels that the anger flashes I sometimes get fits into a bipolar dx, particular since, again, AD's haven't helped my bouts of depression as well as should. Since she tried several over the years and one characteristic of bipolar is not responding well or for very long to AD's...

I'm still not entirely convinced about the bipolar dx, but it's just a name as long as she knows what meds are helping. Again, though, I do not suffer from mania (although it might be nice just once, just for a little while?), so it really throws me into a strange category. I believe there is research about bipolar of a more dysthymic nature.

Is this anything you were looking for?
