See psychiatrist!: If you're off your mood stabilizer, feel mania coming on, and have been "self medicating, " please see a psychiatrist as soon as possible! while lithium may have helped you before, there are newer medications now -- and your condition may now be more complex with the "self medicating." please don't wait for your symptoms to get worse!
