Hey my name is Jorge I am from Mexico I was diagnosed one year ago. I used to take Olanzapine and Fluoxetine and eventhough I feel much better I still have extreme mood swings. Some times I feel really sad but not depressed and some times I feel really angry and irritable but not manic . I don't know if this is normal I feel really really tired all day long almust every day. What can I do? Is this normal? I would really apreacciate any advice. Thanks.View Thread
Hello it is very nice to meet you too, well I am still taking olanzapine for mania but I am not taking antidepressants anymore and well to be honest with you when I started feeling better I stoped taking my meds as I was supossed to and I haven't talked to my doctor in like 4 months.
I totally agree with you some times I don't know if it is only me or it is because of the Ilness. I am really scared to get depressed or manic again I guess you know what I mean.
Thanks a lot it really helped. It is really really ncie to talk to someone who understands me some times I feel like I am the only guy in the world who feels like this. Take care.View Thread
