It is not likely that a true mania has been triggered. It sounds to me more like an energized disinhibition produced by the benzodiazepine (with or without caffeine).

The point of the subject header is a very important one. Although there are a few people who remain consistently hypomanic for many years, this is the exception rather than the rule. Usually, each episode of hypomania is of short duration, often lasting for a matter of days to a few weeks. It can feel great. The downside is that there is usually a downside. Hypomanias don't usually resolve into a euthymic (normal) state. Rather, they end with a moodswing into depression. Sometimes this depression remits spontaneously after a few days, sometimes it does not remit until there is a medical intervention.

There are many examples of celebrities in the past whom have experienced prolific periods of creativity during hypomanic episodes. Unfortunately, many of these same people committed suicide while in the depressed state that followed the hypomania.

Hypomania does feel great. But my oh my is the fall afterwards a treacherous terrifying one. Please be careful.

In the back of my mind I'm kind of hoping that the increased dose of prozac is kicking in and you are feeling so much better that you are in a rejoicing state. I hope that is what is happening and not hypomania.

Hypomania is a brief state and good to be cautious about. Talk to doc about it. However.....

Mania is of serious concern, and can be very close to psychosis.
Major Danger Signs: extravagant spending sprees, cleaning and trashing out your house (or something similar), not sleeping, sexual promiscuity, megalomania, paranoia, and visual/auditory hallucinations. CALL DOC IMMEDIATELY.

Oh wouldn't life be great if one could just be a little hypomanic/hyperthymic forever? There are some lucky ones' but the gene seems to be-ironically-recessive and rare. Or they don't reproduce as much, or.... What a bastard nature is sometimes.

Payback?

There are a number of postings by certain folks that don't belong on meds but are entirely social or discussion of individual's current state and life circumstances and they appear to be "allowed" without redirect. (smile)
