Thanks. I have been on Depakote for years and have had zero side effects. Seriously its probably one of the best tollerated drugs for me. I dont know if I was manic or not, when this all happened I was halucinating and other stuff. Hearing voices and seeing people trying to attack me that were not there. I became very paranoid. I got so scared in a toilet once because I thought I could see people coming to get me that i broke down the door off its hinges. Apparently I did this a few times but I cant remember the others. I really should have been put back in a psych ward (just got out a few weeks before). It was pretty bad and this went on for months. I dont know. I have to get the papers from my old psychatrists to show my new one so he can examine what they have said I guess. Lamictal isnt an option for me, I cant afford it but Im not really that depressed at the moment and I hear that its not that good for mania. Whatever happened I really hope it doesnt happen again. I did so many weird things. I thought God was talking to me, I converted to another religion changed my name legally, went to live on the streets. I dont think xanax can cause this but yea who knows hey? But thinking about it, doctors have seen me hypomanic a lot especially when I have that kind of "scattered" way of speaking (Depkaote has stopped this totally) its just the one time that I have been totally manic. I guess I will forever be labelled with Bipolar I disorder.
Thanks and take care.

> I have had a similar thing happen to me recently too. But, i didnt do drugs (drank alot though) and went into some type of hypomania episode or something. My pdoc says i dont have bp either, but my T thinks I do. Anyway, I just wanted to say that Depokote (in my opionion) is horrible. I took it and was a zombie- I dont even remember the things I did. Lamictal seems to be alot better, I am clear minded. Maybe you should ask your doc about that instead of the depokote..I would def. get off that!!!!!!!
