> I seem to exhibit a lot of your symptoms. Maybe it's time for a new DX. Fondly, Phillipa

I'm diagonosed Bipolar II. Unmedicated, I'm usually stuck in depression and have mixed states a good bit, but I occasionally have hypomanic periods where I get alot done. I go manic on antidepressants even on mood stabilizers. When I took Lexapro and Zoloft, my mood stabilizer was 100mg of Topamax (yeah, this was barely at a therapeutic level).

I took Lexapro again later on but with Depakote. On this combo, I was having hypomanic periods at work where I'd be really hyper, acting out of character, laughing, and working at a super-fast pace. One of the people who I work with even asked me if I was taking Speed. When I came back from my break one time, I came back to the work area walking so fast, and the coworker said, "Are you on Speed? Looks like you're on Speed or something". My department manager thought I was just really hyper. I told them I was having a caffeine/sugar rush. I had drunk a coke during my break. That was funny. Another day, on this same combo of drugs, I had another hypomanic experience where I pulled a stunt at work. Some ladies were demo-ing soy milk, and I sampled it. I joked around and said, "THIS STUFF IS NASTY!!!", and I was laughing all over the place. Customers noticed how I was acting. I told many other employees about how nasty it was as well in a laughing tone of voice. This was kinda out of character. In reality, I love soy milk.
