I guess that depends on whether or not you believe that antidepressants can uncover otherwise occult bipolar disorder. In my layman way of thinking, if antidepressants can indeed uncover bipolar disorder, then any schizoid psychosis that follows would indicate something other than uncomplicated bipolar disorder. It would be interesting to talk to a few researchers about this. I am absolutely sure that not all occurrences of mania and psychosis that appear as the result of exposure to chemical substances are evidence of mental illness. I have seen prednisone do this to an elderly woman who had no history of mental illness. She experienced visual and auditory hallucinations while the drug was being administered in the hospital. Fortunately, the psychosis resolved immediately upon the discontinuation of the drug.
