Bath salts and seroquel

hello :) i have a question concerning my fiance. he has been diagnosed as bipolar, and is taking seroquel as treatment. it has been working WONDERS for his manic episodes and depressive tendencies, almost a complete 180 turn around from his behavior previous to taking the medication. however, he has began snorting these bath salts sold at the local smoke shop and i was wondering the affects of this combined with his medication because he has been for the last few days displaying bipolar qualities again

Hello sami;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The wonders concerning the bipolar disorders were due to seroquel as he may be taking it regularly and the reversal to the old personality can be either he is avoiding to take medicine(seroquel) regularly as even he may be fearing the interaction between the two.The second reason can be that he is combining the use of bath salt with the medicine.Discuss with him i guess the first one will be true and if he is going to remain on bath salt addiction no body can help him.If he wants to get over bipolar disorder he has to take medicines regularly ;follow up wit his doctor and keep away from all sorts of addictions like alcohol;drugs ;bath salts.
