(Edit: Whoops...just realized this should be in the medications subforum-thing, but whatever >.<) So... I have bipolar disorder, and I am currently on two medications: Lithium and seroquel. Awhile ago I decided that I didn't like the seroquel because it made me gain weight and made me feel like a zombie...I've been gradually lowering it and am now at a dosage of 50mg. I'm getting excessive mood swings again...gone from being really depressed and sluggish to completely out of control and slightly panicy. I've been falling behind in my school work and been isolating myself from my peers. My problem: I do NOT want do re-increase my seroquel dose...In fact I will not, so the logical choice would probably be to increase my Lithuim dosage (which is relatively low right now), BUT I'm having trouble bringing this up with my parents and psychiatrist. My parents will freak out, and I don't want that because it just makes things harder for me. How do I bring this up? I've been telling my parents that I'm fine everytime they ask how I'm doing. They might jump to the conlusion that I've been lying about other things as well. Help?
