PTBO52: BiPolar is hard to diagnose at first as it can mimic other mental diseases. I believe lithium is used but causes weight gain and tired feeling. Some bipolar patients like the high they get when not taking rx but crash really hard and do tend to become self destructive. I can't remember what other rx is taken with lithium? Are you researching other rx for depression? I find this topic fascinating. Write more!

sidrailyas: u are right lithium is the most common drug of choice.since by polar disorder is characterized by episodes of extreme mania and insomnia.so i guess we can give proper medication for that as well as a n adjunct.normally anticonvulsants are also give.but im curious that how much the symptoms have to be advanced that one should suggest electro convulsive therapy.i mean one should wait for how long to see if medication isnt working and switch to the shock treatment..

sidrailyas: i think electric stimulation of certain areas may lead to release of neurotransmitrs and they might do the job.but i will do my homework on entire mechanism first.

PTBO52: I had a friend years ago with bipolar, OCD and chronic depression. Alot of her direct family had these illness's also. They had her on almost every drug you can think of and nothing worked. She was hospitalized alot. Finally, they did shock therapy. At least 3 times in one year and for about a week she would feel OK then start sliding back. This was a very intelligent girl who held a professional position at a Toronto Hospital. She ended up losing her job, ran out of paid sick time and then totally fell of my radar screen. Just up and moved and I have never heard from her since. 14 yrs. ago. I always have a bad feeling when I think of her.

PTBO52: Pet scans really show whats happening in the brain. If neurotransmitters are functioning properly but unforunately very few Pet scans are done because of the cost.
Here is another bit of info: a person might be bi-polar but live their life fairly normal until a major crisis happens and then it sets it off
until the person can't cope without Rx.

PTBO52: What I mean by latent, the person might seem high-spirited but within normal boundaries. Then a major crisis like a death, losing a long time job, moving seems to trigger either a major depressive disorder or bi-polar or other disorders. Alot of these people are predisposed to these disorders. As long as the boat wasn't rocked they could maintain.

Spirit One: Mental illnesses are caused from years of wrong eating ,If you put muddy water in your fuel tank ,don't expect your vehicle to run to good ,look at your lifestyle and eating habits ,do you smoke ,consume alcoholic spirits ,eat lots of fatty fried foods ,don't drink water ,don't have a healthy sleep pattern ? all of these things contribute greatly to Depression ,sights ,sounds and memories are all triggers for depression ,take care of the causes and the rest will disappear.

PTBO52: OK, I have never really posted an angry message but this one I can't let it go. Spirit, I know you have your own beliefs and religion but to make a statement that if everyone ate better, didn't drink alcohol, smoked blaaa there wouldn't be any mental illness is absurd. If thats all there was to it we all would be cured. Do you really know what mental illness's are? Bi-polar, chronic depression, borderline personality disorder, anorexia, OCD and on and on. Yes some of lets say depression can be blamed on drugs and alcohol BUT there again are ppl trying to self medicate to aleve the depression??? In alot of cases yes.
Do you know what would happen if someone decided to go off their Rx and just follow your advice? You would have no idea the consequences they would suffer. So, by making those statements; I feel they are dangerous.

PTBO52: Solaris: OMG I'm still laughing, I guess that means The Big Whopper meal deal I had today means I'm history lol.

I'm not making light of the content of the posts in any way but I have a weird sense of humour and I don't find too many things funny but Solaris's comment struck me so funny. All in the timing!

sidrailyas: well hold on guys.comeback.leave poor spirit alone.

ok spirit let me tell u the meal habbits and sleeping patterns are the aggrevating factors or sometimes symptoms of many deppression and anxieties.but what we are discussing here is a bipolar disorder.to trigger such a mental illness there has to be a strong stimulus like a death of someone related or economical problems e.t.c if the stimulus is intense enough it disturbs the brain neurotransmmitter balance and results in a severe mental disability.sleeping or meal patterns can help but sorry to say they are minor factors.i would have loved to say that they can help in disorder like this but they alone cant.one has to go for chemotherapy or if not then shock therapy.

PTBO52: I found this topic to be very stimulating and let me actually post something I know about although I'm not a Dr. I was very upset to have it turn into a farce. Spirit if you had posted your thoughts in aless hostile way it could have made a big difference. I'm sorry it happened and disappointed too.

Spirit One: M-S is a Neurological disorder ,most {not all } suffering from it bring it on themselves by consuming products with the artificial sweetener ASPERTAME { Sold By MONSANTO CORP. as ant poison and listed as a Neurotoxin } it's in Diet soda and sugar free products all over the inside shelves of Supermarkets around the world .it is a substance that NEVER leaves your system { There are many such chemicals ,I think the FDA knows of over 600 INDUSTRIAL chemicals in the food supply } even antifreeze is being used as an artificial sweetener {That stuff will kill your pets and it's supposed to be okay for Human consumption ?} It's in Canned biscuits and cake mixes -just look for ETHYLENE GLYCOL -most of these things weren't in the food 10 yrs ago ,I Apologize for last comments ,just don't like being told I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT ,I'm Very knowledgeable about medicine ,Oh ! I read about a man who went through a nursing home and was astonished at the number of young patients in there {most were in the 30-50 range }all suffering from M-S ,33 of them ,he found they were all consuming Aspartame daily ,all on a sugar free diet ,took away the Aspartame ,all but 5 recovered back to functioning members in society ,the other 5 have PERMANENT damage .Look at what your consuming is wise advice for all - if you eat crap you will develop health problems then you're at the mercy of the medical system and pill Pushers Never to late to get healthy ANYONE can turn their health around for the better ,10 yrs ago I was diagnosed with Asbestosis and Mesothelioma ,the Dr's told me I would be dead in a couple yrs if I didn't start aggressive TREATMENTS ,I turned My life around that day -It has nothing to do with my belief -that came later ,If you met me in person you wouldn't know I have Lung Cancer ,I use a NATURAL cold N flu CURE Daily ,it keeps me breathing without Oxygen ,It also works as a Cold-n-Flu Preventative and cure .The recipe is on the Alternative Medicine Club Site if anyone wants it
