Fortunately, feeling bad isn't a competition, and nomatter how bad anyone else felt, wouldn't make you feel any better. Now, having seen your pychiatrist on Monday, he's the one likely to be able to suggest why you are feeling worse today. You don't mention what treatment you are receiving, but AD medication AND CBT counselling would be a good idea.
Seroquel is a more reently available med which does seem to suit some people with Bipolar disorder rather well. As do other more recent Bipolar meds / mood stabilizers. Stelazine is not as fashionable for this condition, and the newer drugs seem to do better.
As LS says, all meds have a long list of side-effects --- which are not compulsory ! The system requires that ALL side-effects which ocur, even if fairly rarely, should be listed.
