My husband was doing good on medication on bipolar disorder for 3 years (he is been diagnosed for 20 years). 3 weeks ago he met a psychologist who told him (did test it him) he is not bipolar and since that time my husband is in hospital because he did cold turky. Any idea what to do? He is mad on me, his psychiatrist that we put him back in hospital. He is in paranoia and trust only that psychologist. It's his second time in hospital whichin 3 weeks period. I need help, advice what to do?

Bipolars love the denials, so try to get another opinion, this time from a psychiatrist. But if he is in the hospital most likely he suffers from something. Maybe if 2 out of 3 psychiatrist (not a psychologist) can determine what's wrong with him.

Best of lucks for you and your family.

he is bipolar for 20 years and he had 3 independent diagnosis always came up as bipolar. For last 3 years he was medicin compliant. But something happened in his mind for last 3 month he didnt sleep and got manic and didnt want to make a visit to his psychiatrist instead he found one psychologist who convinst him he has major depression so, he stopped medication and is second time in hospital. My husband paying this guy just for hearing what he always wanted heared.

If he's in the hospital, isn't he required to take the correct medication? After they have him on medication that actually works and treats his symptoms, his delusions should disappear. Then hopefully he'll be diagnosed as bipolar again. And he'll see that he needs to stay compliant with his treatment.

Did he voluntarily admit himself to the psychiatric unit or was put there involuntarily by a Physician Emergency Commitment?

That will greatly influence what happens next.

It sounds like a full blown manic episode. They will probably put him back on medication and get him stabilized.

Are you able to speak with his doctors?

Yes, he voluntarily admit himself. First time he was easy to do it week later when he left hospital he was still good on hospital medication then he met this psychologist again that he call him couch, this guy already charged hundred of dollars from our insurance and keep telling my husband he is not bipolar. The second hospitalization was more difficult but somehow the doctor pushed him to volunterirly admit to the hospital even though they were ready to get him anyway. The second hospitalization was on New Year's Eve. He is still there, taking hospital medication and can't wait to go out. He doesn't talk to me at all, the situation is tough becouse he believes his "couch" who is licensed psychologist. Money are flying out from our pocket, difficult situation, not mentioning we have 4 little kids. I wish this psychologist same nightmare in his happy life that he has now.

Has he authorized you to speak with his doctors? If he has, call the psych unit and ask to be put in touch with his Social Worker or Case Manager (he should have one) and express all of these concerns to him. Ask to have a session with your husband to talk about expectations after discharge. I'd suggest he go to some form of a day treatment program for mental illness.

What state are you in?
