Please tell me more about Bipolar III. None of the AD's I have tried have worked, and I seem to get extremely revved up on the ones I do take. I don't think it's hypomania though. My depressive characteristics are, lethargy, poor concentration and memory, and low self-esteem. I am also very socially anxious. I would appreciate any feedback you can give me. ~Sherry

> If not, perhaps your doc is thinking about bipolar depression. I recently read there are docs who believe this kind of cycling, resistant to antidepressants, depression is in the bipolar family, and might be classified as bipolar III, depression with no hypomania or mania. I think this is what I have, too.
