Any one received a diagnosis of bipolar mixed?  If so, what meds are you taking?
No one knows

Green Lantern,
 
That's not my official diagnosis, but I have had a mixed episode this past August.
 
I was on Seroquel, then switched to Zyprexa due to side effects.  At other times I was on Abilify and Respirodone.
 
I would definetly talk to a Dr. asap and try to get things under control as early as possible.
 
All I remember I was a mess with the mixed episode, could barely function and was losing touch with reality.  So I def. needed the meds, and I am grateful for them.

Thanks Olivia,
 
That's the current thinking on my diagnosis.  I have a tremendous amount of anxiety, and massive outbursts of rage.  I have been taking Seroquel, Depakote and Klonopin for months now and it doesn't seem to be helping.  What other symptoms did you have?
No one knows

Green Lantern,
 
Back then I had 2 roommates and would get in a fight with one of them, and almost got physical a few times-we were def. yelling at each other, Thank God noone called the cops esp the state I was in.  It didn't help that he was enabling some of the behavior.
 
I was speaking so fast that after a while, nothing I said made sense to the people around me.  Of course to me, I was a geneus and had to get my thought out before it disappeared.
 
I couldn't sit for more than 30 seconds and I was constantly pacing around and smoking cigarettes to try to calm myself down (like 2 packs a day sometimes more).  I couldn't concentrate on anything at all.  I was is a state of panic, what you may ask, I am not even sure anymore.  I could do my school work, so I stopped going to classes completely.  I was making so many mistakes at work, I was sure I was going to get fired, but I remained there for a short while after that.  I quit on my own accord.
 
I was binge drinking, to the point I would pass out.  I don't miss this at all.  Yet, I would still able to wake up and function on 2-3 of sleep
 
I was driving recklously, and was pissed off at everyone.  I was impatient, and normally I guess angry while driving, but I had major road rage.  I drove how I wanted and didn't care about anyone else on the street.
 
Then somewhere in the middle of all that, I had crying spells, and a feeling of hopelessness.  Then I came up with a horrific ways I could end my life.
 
I waited a while to contact my pdoc, so I was in that state for about 2 weeks.  I hope to never go there again
