Your Health ~bipolarhappyandsad.jpg
  

Bipolar 2 disorder sufferers have episodes of hypomania which aren’t generally severe enough for them to think anything is “wrong.” They just seem to be in a great mood and feeling very social and creative. Their depressive states, however, are more severe. The sufferers tend to seek help while in a state of depression, therefore obtaining prescriptions for an antidepressants.

In a study by an Italian psychiatric disorders expert, Franco Benazzi, MD, PhD, says that studies show that antidepressants and a bipolar 2 patient may not make a good combination.

Also, below is an excellent source of links and specific information on the use of antidepressants in those with bipolar. Very interesting material.

Another Article in Print

The Arkansas Traveler, the University of Arkansas' newspaper, published my article on the health and safety of  college students.  Take a look at the Wednesday, October 20, 2010 issue. (www.uatrav.com)  Title is The Truth About Twenty-somethings.        ATTN: Please forgive any typos and especially the changes in point of view in this particular article. It was "edited" and changed (incorrectly) by editors-in-training at the University. They obviously need much more education before editing a seasoned writer's article.
