Thank you so very much for everyones's responses/input
I think my partner isn't telling me everything, but I don't think it's on purpose. Right now he is slow to respond in communication when we talk and he has shown his memory isn't that great as well. I don't think his pdoc sees him as a risk since he is not suicidal and has been working m-f for long hours. I do know his sleep has been affected. I do not know a whole lot about the meds for BP and depression but am slowly learning. His current dx is manic depressive (which i assume is the same as BP) but his pdoc is reevaluating him for possibly changing his dx. One thing I don't understand is that he is taking an AD and not any mood stabalizers. I have read and been told that ADs may bring on manic moods in someone that is BP. especially when not accompanied with MS meds. He started charting his moods toward the end of July. So I guess the timeline seems pretty reasonable if his Pdoc wants to compare a few months of moods. By not giving my partner any other meds while he is charting his moods must be the best way the doc can see how his moods not affected by the meds. Yes.no? His high manias are not extreme;not a noticiable change but his low manias are very obvious; first by others around him then by him, in terms of early symptoms. I'm going to be staying with him for about 4 days toward the end of tis month. I am not sure what to expect. I am hoping he will let me and not make up an excuse for me not to visit. Please let me know what your thoughts are...I really do appreciate the feedback.
