I've been 'depressed' the last few weeks. After a particularly bad week my psychiatrist/psych liason etc all agreed it was worth trying an anti depressant. My psych was worried it would send me high so slightly increased my quitiapine as well. I only took the first dose today but I feel really good
. My friend commented I seemed a bit high. I've been on this med before and it was only at a high dose I had my first 'hypomanic/manic' episode. I'm not hypomanic now, just in a pretty awesome mood! And to be honest it's lively after a really shitty few weeks.
I guess my question is is it even possible that this could be due to the sertraline? I want to just see where it goes tbh but I don't want to damage my friendships or anything of it was to develop into a 'proper' episode. Is it even possible to be so quickly effected by an anti depressant?
