Hello all. It's been a while since I've posted, but things have been relatively calm and stable for the past few weeks with my bp hubby. We have our third counseling session next week. He's totally off the anti-depressant and now only a mood stablizer.
We are communicating better and he hasn't had a raging manic episode in almost 4 weeks. He has mentioned that since he's off the antidepressant, he does feel irritable and his sex drive is in overdrive (not that I'm complaining) BUT is this normal on just a mood stablizer? Isn't the mood stablizer suppose to "stablize" his mood and not make him irritable? Is he about to have another manic episode?
I'm a little concerned that I just don't know what to be looking for as "normal" with him because he hasn't been "normal" for such a long time. Help? Anyone?
