Major Depressive Episode + Mania

Posted by Bryn B. on May 28, 2012, at 17:28:23

Hi All-

I recently posted that my Lexapro was working fine for awhile (20 mg) and recently pooped out. I went from being depressed to having a major depressive episode recently. I spent the last 4 days/nights in bed--slept the entire time. Yesterday, I popped 900 mg of Neurontin (I don't take it daily), which strangely gets me "up" when I'm experiencing an episode. However, it put me into a full blown manic, stoned-feeling episode that lasted from yesterday into the evening. I full out freaked, felt totally out of control and was irritable and hysterical.

I live in Manhattan and don't have insurance, and I'm not currently seeing a pdoc. I was ready to take myself to the psych er, but didn't go. I didn't sleep last night, and I don't feel manic today, but I'm still super cranky and irritable and extremely depressed. I'm at a loss. I hate to "treat" myslef, but I have a full bottle of Topamax, and was thinking about starting at 25mgtonight to stabilize myself. I'm at a loss. I'm so depressed, but I have to work Weds and Thurs this week. If I continue at this rate, I won't be able to make it in on those days. Thoughts?
