I have been diagnosed with manic depression and am taking lamotrigine, and ziprasidone. I was also diagnosed with strep throat this week and have been taking azithromycin. The past three days I’ve been experiencing mania and effects of being “high”. Such as dizziness, severe shaking, hightened emotions and the need to urinate more frequently. What is going on?

Thank you for this ability to chat with you. I have been taking anti-depressants for many years; in my 20 s I was diagnosed with then called manic-depressive disorder, My called bipolar 2 since I have much more depression than manic episodes. I take ativan 1 mg. 4xdaily for bad anxiety and have been taking lexapro 49 mg. daily/as 20 mg. stopped working after a short time. I have depression and anxiety and feel that the lexapro is wearing off and would like your advice as to a new SSRI you might recommend. Fora long time I took Paxil since I have panic attacks and I believe a touch of OCD...so I woulld like a drug that would address all these concerns. I will be seeing the doctor but not till the end of November. One SSRI I have not tried is Klonipin. I prefer to stay in the generiic forms for the ske of the money involved. I have taken: zoloft, celexa, prozac, paxil, and others I cannot think of right now. I need a tablet with a long shelf life to keep me feeling well. Can you suggest anything thanks in advance. AVM
