Re: Need your help....

Babygrl,
I don't believe you are schizophrenic as you would have psychotic episodes where you heard voices or saw things. Now there are bipolars with psychotic features. And many BPs are paranoid. I wouldn't swear by it but possibly the antipsychotic drugs could help. I was put on Risperdal when I was paranoid once. Be sure to call your Pdoc and let him know this is going on. Hope you get it worked out.

Re: Need your help....

Do you have hallucinations and/or delusions when you're not manic? If so, you could have schizoaffective disorder, which is a combination of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. The difference is that schizoaffectives still have psychotic symptoms even when they're experiencing a normal mood. Are you bipolar I? People who have bipolar I are the ones with the full-blown psychotic episodes.
