Bi-polar And Major Depressive Disorder

Bi-polar And Major Depressive Disorder

I seem to remember some manic moments, before 30 years ago, but since than it's just been increasingly severe depression. has anyone else experienced a change like that?

I'm bipolar 2 also and I feel depressed more days than not. "Manic" episodes for me now feel more like coming up to a "normal" level, but looking back 20 years ago I can see that I was probably having a lot of manic behavior. I've never had the staying up for days at a time kinda thing, but lots of risky behavior and excessive energy for a week or two at time and then feeling like I just needed to crash for a period of time. However, I was just diagnosed bipolar in the last couple years. I started taking Latuda and the difference in my mood was dramatic, I hadn't felt that good in many years. Unfortunately, it stopped working at the dose I was on and an increased dose gave me bad side effects.

sometimes you just have to be patient while the type and dosage take effect. I've been on just about every combo for depression out there and they work super-fast but I build up a tolerance fast too. best-

Yeah I can recall and identify with that? Life experiences of bereavement, DV, always felt low self worth.
