Our expert says:
It is never wise to stop meds, wih a condition like this, without discussing it in detail with your shrink - it will still of course be your decision, but it should always be a properly informed decision, with you knowing the risks.
That you now get unpleasant mood swings is hardly surtprising, and presumably one of the reasons for the meds was to control these. It may take time to find the right combination of meds and the right doses, to suit your particular chemical storms, but it is worth persisting. Most side-effects improve with time, too. Is a divorce really a better option than seeking proper control of the mood swings ? And are your studies really likely to go better unmedicated ?
