... Recently I was told I have Bipolar. I am on Seroquel 200mg, Lamictal 300mg, Prozac 40mg. My PMD has inquired about me changing to Effexor for my Fibromyalgia. My Psyche. MD Is very concerned it will cause a mood switch to Mania. So, why not a clear Dx of Bipolar 2? What does "Mood Disorder" mean? My Psyche said it was on the Bipolar Spectrum. Where on the spectrum? I took a class on BP, so I do understand the spectrum, & B.A.D. I have had depression for 20 years on Prozac 20-40mg. Thank you for taking time to answer my question!
Effexor can push you into mania, if you keep taking the prozac. There are specific diagnosis and wording that has to be used for the records because of billing. BiPolar is probably too wide a diagnosis. Your record has to reflect what they use for billing. This is confusing and people want a flat out diagnosis and its hard to get that these days. They are trying to get away from labels and using something more descriptive.
