It depends.: First I would want to make sure that there is no other treatable medical condition underlying your symptoms like: hypo/hyperthyroidism, taking too much caffeine or stimulants, lupus etc. then I would have a discussion with a mental health professional and really examine your life story- if there us a chronic pattern of ups and downs perhaps you might want to consider engaging in therapy.
