Hi Lamdage. I would simply ask for a reconsideration of the diagnosis. Just ask about the possibility that the psychosis was a reaction to this particular medication.

You might discuss the timeline of what symptoms you were having before, during and after treatment with nardil.

Now, I don't have all the information myself. Also, I am not a doctor. I do know that, often doctors can diagnose you based on the symptom du jour. They are not living in your body every day. When you arm yourself with knowledge, you can get better at understanding your symptoms. For example, when you go on Wikipedia, and look up bipolar, depression, schizophrenia, OCD, GAD, schizophrenia etc. which seems to hit home the most?

This being said, you may have a *vulnerability* to this kind of reaction. That doesn't mean you (necessarily) need to be on antipsychotics long term. It may mean that you need to be careful about which drugs you take.

Whatever you do, go slowly, and listen to how you're reacting. Don't be afraid to go back a step, if it's not going how you expect.

For me, I'm not exactly sure what I have. It may be some form of bipolar, but it may also be agitated depression.

In reality thought. There are trillions of different combinations of genetic variations. We don't all have 1 of 4 or 5 diseases!!
