bipolar behavioru
I have bipolar. Am on Camcolit. Been quite fne but this weekend extremely manic. I have barely had any sleep and now all of a sudden I am tearful. I was okay this morning but out of the blue I want to cry. Is this normal even though i am on lithium. I thought lithium should stop that.

Hi keli,
This can happen, indeed, and you need to contact your own treating / prescriing doctor for advice on this. Lithium like other mood-stabilizing meds, helps to reduce the frequecy and severity of mood swings, but can't make it impossible for them to occur.
