Does zoloft cause you to be manic if you are bipolar? I have bad anxeity. I am 32weeks preggo, on seroquel OB said to talk zoloft asked shrink he said it could make me worse and put me into manic state. is this true
Yes any anti-depressent especially an SSRI when used in a person with bipolar has the potential to induce manic episodes. If your psychiatrist had concerns they were right but you could ask them more about what other options might be helpful.
He said there is not much else he can do for me :( He gave me some neurtion(Sp) to take that helps with anxiety. Benzos are bad for babies so that is out. I want back on my litmital(sp). That helps so much.
It definably did for me. Not knowing what was really wrong and having most forms of anxiety I went for help (not the 1 st time) Doctors always thought I was depressed. Anyhow 4 days into Zoloft I had a complete mental breakdown and an accurate diagnosis. waiting to see psychiatrist still. anyhow Im in a manic state and its worse than they ever where before. whether its due to the zoloft or age as I read it gets worse not sure
