How many of you have been diagnosed with bipolar? because I'm really starting to think I'm bipolar, no for reals.

yeah I get the distinct impression we know more than a lot of the professionals out there. i definitely know more than my GP. but then he is a 'general practitioner' not a psychiatrist.

sleeping b you are so not schizophrenic from that incident - besides, dont you have to exhibit the symptoms for at least 3 months or something for that diagnosis. whats your doc on about? i took Sonata, a relatively harmless (in comparison to tranqs) sleeping pill and totally felt like i was on acid. i was basically dreaming whilst awake with auditory hallucinations and 'felt' people in the room etc. tripping out. my doc mentioned something about psychotic reaction. i really couldnt care less what he said, im not psychotic, the reaction may have brought on psychotic like symptoms but i was ok when i woke up the next day. everybody who takes acid must have a psychotic episode every time they take it in that case. if the psychotic symptoms leave your body along with the drug then you aint psychotic

Interesting stuff, will print out and read it. I kind of glanced over it just now - what's iatrogenic?

I agree with you in the sense that 'diagnoses' ie giving a name to something and then prescribing a particular med to treat it may be a way to make money because quite often its never that clear cut. In fact I doubt it ever is. However, my panic attacks weren't caused by any drug (thats why i asked about iatrogenic), i was quite young. And drugs have helped me. But will read your stuff because I'm a bit of a conspiracy theorist and love to doubt the government and drug companies... :lol:
