For those familiar with bipolar, could a 10-11 yo be triggered into major depression (1st time), then go into a manic state for 2-3mos., then be stable for 8-9 mos., then go into major depression for 1-2 mos., then manic state for 1 mo., then appear to be cycling back and forth every 2 weeks? Does this sound more like ineffectively treating major depression (unipolar), or bipolar, or some other uncontrolled mixture of depression and anxiety? Yes, he was on prozac, he was put on it about the 2nd mo. of the first "manic period" until the beginning of the 2nd "manic" period, so I'm not sure that it caused the 2nd one- maybe contributed to it though. I wanted to ask psychiatrist but had too many other issues to discuss.
