SSRI-induced manic state?

Posted by Ellen on October 31, 1999, at 18:19:24

I'd really appreciate hearing from anyone who has experienced hypomania (a mildy manic state) when taking SSRI's. I think that's happening to my sister (she's neglecting her children in order to carry on an affair which has broken up her marriage--very different from how she was before starting Paxil). She doesn't think anything is wrong (but people in mania often don't, I gather) and won't talk to her doctor about it. She was started on Paxil by a previous doctor, so her current doc never knew her pre-meds. Has anyone else had a similar experience? I think she might hear it from you better than from me! Thanks.

P.S. I'm not anti-med, I take them myself. All I want is for her to discuss the situation with her doctor. I've thought about calling him to voice my concerns, but that seems awfully intrusive.
