Seroq./Neuront. cause rapid cycling at start-up???

Posted by jasmineneroli on October 6, 2009, at 13:44:39

I have 3 questions:

1) Can Seroquel induce cycling (I've had hypo-mania, mania, lethargic depression, then anxiety/thought perseveration in a matter of 7 days)? I was on it 2 weeks when this started, & up to 150mg by start of week 2.
2) Can Neurontin cause the above? I had been on Trileptal for 2 wks then was switched to Neurontin 900mg, due to severe headaches on Trileptal.

I have lowered both drugs (Seroquel 100mg & Neurontin 300mg) 4 days ago, and feel a bit more even, but prone to lethargic depression now.

3)Does a rapid cycling response to these drugs confirm the diagnosis of Bipolar 2 or others in the Bipolar range?

My problem is with trying to sort out what is just me (i.e my mood disorder), and what is drug response. You see, I felt like I was headed for mania/instability over a month ago, so I decided I needed to find a Pdoc in my new city and resume drug treatment. (Off meds for 6 months).He prescribed the above drugs.
It's so confusing.

Thanks for any opinions.
