Re: BPI and BPII very different

Another thing to mention is that, according to a recent (fairly large) genetic study, patients with BPII had more genetic overlap with MDD rather than BPI.

If this is the case, then the BP diagnosis could really be a hinderance to a proper recovery.

If I have 'BP' it is BPII. For me, mood stabilizers alone DO NOT WORK. If I got the BP diagnosis, I'm afraid I would be relegated to a treatment course that avoids antidepressants and/or stimulants.

Personally, I don't know how somebody would function on say lithium + olanzapine. I don't know how they would experience any pleasure at all. But, of course, we are all different.
