Bipolar and Hypersexuality

User Profile
I am Bipolar, male, and 44 years old. I am in the midst of the end of a manic episode. During this manic episode, and for some time before, I have been Hypersexual. I want it all the time, and I am never satisfied after I get it, no matter how long the session lasts. I'm married (about 20 years), and I look at other women thinking sexual things.

So, here's my question: Is there something that can be done for this? Like a shot of something? How long would the effects of the treatment last? Would I still be able to please my wife if she desired?

Thanks

some women like it when men have sex with them while they're sleeping.. um.. Eskimo men had more than one wife.. I don't know, keep her happy. She's important. I'm bipolar too. I've never known what it's like to be in a committed relationship though so I don't know what else to say.

If I could I would have just one partner the whole rest of my life.

Thanks for the input.

I have never went outside my marriage for sex. I just am at wits end trying to keep myself satisfied, I figured lowering my desire would help a little.

I was on Topamax a long time ago for migraine prevention. It cost me a really good job, because it made me stupid. The folks (Doctors) around here call it Stupamax.

I know you are just trying to help, and thank you.
