Our expert says:
This does indeed sound like a bipolar disorder. Some people achieve complete control with medication ( and they may have to try several before finding the meds and dosasges which best suit them ) ; most achieve very useful improvement and a useful degree of control, even if there are sttill some variations in mood. A second opinion is a fair idea, and any good psychiatrist indeed doc of any sort, ought to accept and assist with this. There are many different meds, at different doses and in different combinations, which could be helpful. Have you, as a first step, asked your current psychiatrist to re-review the situation ?
