In reply to paradoxical effects on mood stabilizers and atypic, posted by porkpiehat on July 23, 2021, at 21:01:07

Hi:

Just one little observation I have made for myself. At normal doses, both atypicals and mood stabilizers cause what I now realize was acute, agitated depression. Yes, depression can INCREASE manic-type symptoms. It is called dysphoric mania. I had that problem for years. It is almost paradoxical to our current traditional thinking.

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/27866502/

Those are just some basic introductions to the term and illness. They are really dynamic and unique to, again, the ideas that mania is only some semi-euphoric state, and that depression is just some apathetic, run-down state...or something like that. (I am using generalizations just to be concise) The term seems to share SOME similarities to 'mixed state', but it still is a very different concept.

Hope that helps..and best to your Mom
Jay
