Loien is a generic ( chemically identical but cheaper ) form of Fluoxetine, the active ingredient in Prozac. It could help with depressions, but wouldn't be at all helpful in highs. Maybe you should see a different psychiatrist for a second opinion, as there are a number of useful drugs which work as mood stabilizers, and could reduce the mood swings in both directions
