Thank you for being here for us. 1. Is there research on the effects of isolation on manic episodes? I was on Short Term Disability last fall (without realizing I was manic) and was quarantining in my apartment. I had two panic attacks in one week that resulted in me calling 911 because I couldn't be alone (I live alone). 2. Does bipolar medication strain the liver? Is there any increased risk for liver disease or fatty liver disease? I am stable now, taking a new batch of medicine, but I have gained 35 pounds since December despite going to the gym. It is hard to lose weight now. I take Lithium, Lamictal, Invega, and Trazodone.
