Diagnosed as Bipolar

Hey everyone i hope you are doing well,

i had another manic/psychotic break on 345mg effexor and the small size of wellbutrin.

I also took a whole bunch of other stuff including 5htp, methylfolate...

I was weined of everything abpuptly in the hospital.

As for now they put me on 900mg Lithium and 100mg seroquel since about 3 weeks.

Im sleeping 10+ hours and feel its difficult to wake up in the morning once again. It feels like some depression is returning.
I have less drive, creativity is a bit blocked.. I would really like to fix this so i finally have the right treatment on the physiological side of the problem. Lithium seems to be the most important part of the treatment, but im not sure if lithium alone will lift the mood so it is in an healthy area.

I would say the most exact diagnosis for me is Dysthymia AND Bipolar. So my bipolar axis is not "normal mood" but dysthymia(slight depression).
Dysthymic Bipolar Disorder or something like that you get the deal

I am thinking about adding something mild antidepressive to the lithium. Maybe a supplement, maybe one of the milder antidepressants. Another thing we found out, is that i am extremely sensitive to dopamine increases.

What are you guys thinking? I want to have my sleep around 8 hours and i want to be able to start into the day with drive and creativity.
