Hello, I experience exactly what you described and here I am on the internet hoping to discover what my diagnosis is. After a full course of all the heavy meds for manic-depression my doctor discontinued them. I assumed he didn't think I was manic-depressive any longer but actually he re-diagnosed me as cyclothymic. Now, when I have a hypomanic phase (and I do rapid cycling) I take 300 MG of lithium in the form of lithobid which is easier on my stomache and still take a small dose of prozac, 5 MG. Whichever disorder you or I have as a diagnosis, to flip from up to down so frequently is disconcerting. I had such a bad bout recently that I took a medical leave from work and haven't returned in 5 stabilization. I also find that my hormonal cycles affect my cyclothymia. God Bless! Cynthia
