Re: Bipolar wife. PLEASE help !

I'm not a doctor, but it sounds to me as if your wife is bipolar and suffered a manic episode during her spending sprees. I would suggest that you post another message on the bipolar board to get some other ideas as to how you could address the difficulties you are having with your wife. If her issues become severe, you could always call 911 and have the police take her to the ER for a psych. evaluation and possible inpatient hospitalization. If she is manic, that needs to be controlled and can be life threatening. Take it from someone who has been diagnosed with bipolar for the past 2 years. I really feel for you and hope you are able to find your wife the help she so desperately needs. Here's wishing you both all the best.
Atypical Bipolar I Disorder with Rapid Cycling
Depakote 1500mg
Prozac 40mg
Risperdal 1mg titrating to 6mg/day
Klonopin .5mg (2x/day)
Trazodone 100mg or 200mg PRN
