2 years ago i was diagnosed with and auto immune disease and put on a drug called plaquenil. A year later i found myself going into therapy that eventually lead to a psychiatrist that diagnosed me with bipolar disorder.
I have come to find out that the drug plaquenil has "side effects" of mental mood disorders, anxiety, paranoia, and nightmares (to name a few)
when i went off this drug, after only a few days i felt like a new person i no longer needed any of the mood stabilizers.. I felt as if i had an exorcism!
If any of you are on medication for any condition or reason, even birth control pills or otherwise, i beg you to please look into "all" the side effects to your medicines, you may not be mentally ill, it could just be your meds!
