I have been riding the wave of a hypomania. Was in the hospital a couple of months ago, but still up to my old tricks. Pdoc put me on ativan,(or actually lozipam i think). 1mg twice a day. I wish I had known about this stuff years ago! The doc says I will only stay on it until I get stabilized. Rats! Says its addictive, but that a chance I'm willing to take. Whoo Hoo!

Good stuff, man.
I want "I wish I had one more day to spend at the office" on my tombstone.

I used to be crazy, but now I have enough money to be called eccentric.

You mean lorazepam? Sort of a Xanax drug. Yes, addictive, but probably worth it, considering the trade offs. When I took it, I said I am not one to be addicted to anything and take it in the long term. If I get addicted to this, I'll face it when the time comes. Right now, I need the drug.

Did the doctor mention to you that this drug can cause hypomania? Not widely known, not widely understood, but it can make a person worse if they have Bipolar II.

cool  Hey Capnin Hapnin, Whazz Up dude? I love your name!
I'm glad you got something to get you out of your rut! It's sooo nice when you find a GREAT drug that makes you feel "Feelin Good!"
I was prescribed Xanax for my anxiety a long time ago. It too was my Great drug. Sadly for me I started abusing it and using it with alcohol and got addicted to it. Ended up in the hospital.
I still take it now but once a day. But many times I am tempted to go just a little overboard. It is a struggle at times. You know how that goes when things just seem to be moving too slowly for us.
I hope you're smart and use it as directed by your doc. He'll get you back to feelin good some time soon. "Hang Tough" is always a great one liner for me. "I'm just Hangin Tough".
Wishing you wellness. And enjoy it while you can.
Sincerely, ~Sukay~*
