Recently my psychiatrist suggested that she would consider taking me off of my medication. I was diagnosed as bipolar 1 a few years ago after a experiencing antidepressant-induced mania.

Since then, I’ve been on medication and have not experienced a single breakthrough. Also prior to my first diagnosis, I had not had any bipolar symptoms except for the bout of depression that led me to seek out treatment in the first place. I was going through a lot in life at that time, so she believes that may have triggered the depression. Currently, she wants to change my diagnosis to Bipolar unspecified, as she feels it may be more accurate than Bipolar 1. Has anyone else willingly stopped taking medication with the support of their doctor? How was that experience? #Bipolar1Disorder #BipolarNOS #BipolarDisorder
