This is my first time to post here, so I am hoping this is going in the right category! I have been diagnosed Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. I have been taking Zoloft (200 mg) and buspar (45mg)a day.
My grandmother, sister, and niece have bipolar I with a lot of depression in my background. I have been feeling really good after taking Zoloft, but haven't given this much thought. A psychiatrist said I was 'kind of' bubbly and pointed out that antidepressants can cause mainia if there is a benetic background of bipolar! I am quite happy and then mildly depressed(grumpy) and my mood goes slightly up and down and up and down and varies several times during the day. Does this sound like Bipolar III (cyclothmic disorder). I am going to my doctor tommorrow!
What type of drugs do they prescribe to Bipolar III and is it possible to be OCD and bipolar III at the same time?
Is there anyone out there like this?
