Ive been on nearly every med out there over the last 10 years, my family thinks my rapid cyclying is crazy but they wont listen to me when I try to talk to them....what am I doing wrong? how do I stop the ups and downs? been to DBT and CBT, coucnelling....am I crazy? Its getting worse with age and stress.....help!
I just stopped caffeine completeyl about a week agao, and I noticed it made a huge difference, Im not so moody or up and down, irritable or manic....I am already taking a mixture of meds, but Im wondering: Im on a strong antidepressant and I heard sometimes they can make you rapid cycle.....maybe I should mention that to my doctor?
I'm a caffeine junky too, suggest one of the caffeine free beverages, coffee and energy drinks I'm not so sure about. Please do not mix meds without your pdoc's advice. I'm not a professional, butt have taken meds for 31 years. Welcome to the board, stable is a good thing.
