Lithium is a good drug for BP, it helps with depression and mood swings. It's called a mood stabilizer. Sometimes people don't want to admit that things have changed, or that they are so close to you, that they don't notice. I honestly wouldn't go by what your roomies say. Bipolars can't stay off meds, it will get worse with time if left untreated. Statistics show that mood swings will get worse and so will the depression the longer it goes untreated. I was 16 when I was first diagnosed, I totally didn't believe them and went off BP meds, then was diagnosed again at 39. If I could do things differently, I would have taken the doctors seriously and stayed on the meds. What I would do is talk to your doctor, if you don't have a psychdoc, get one. TTalk about why your were diagnosed and why you were put on the med. It's an easy drug to change if you need to.
