Hi, Lamdage22,

You have endured a great many torturous experiences, including treatment with psychiatric medications.

In my opinion, you are brave to have provided so much personal information. I know that you are resilient and constructive, and I don't blame you for being skeptical of psychiatry.

I don't want you to take this as any kind of accusation. I am only trying to provide as much information and personal opinions in an effort to help you. Your psychosis appears to be schizoid rather than pure bipolar mania. I can't diagnose you with certainty. I'm not a doctor, but I know just enough to make me dangerous. It appears that you do have schizoaffective disorder. I followed one of my friends who had schizoaffective bipolar type closely. I noticed that her schizoaffective cycle went from normal -> mania -> schizoid psychosis -> depression -> normal. For her, it was anxiety that seemed to trigger the mania. Interestingly, Xanax was capable of ameliorating the cycle by squashing the anxiety. For you, the trigger might be a MAOI. This is only a theory, of course.

Which drugs will you taper first?
