Default How do you gauge this?

Awhile back I stopped taking my medications. I was on citalopram (above the highest recommended dose- which is evidently also the highest proven therapeutic dose- and she was thinking about going further), bupropion (heavy dose), and Abilify and still managed to flip out a little bit. The first few days off of them were rough, but now things seem...I don't know. I'm not obsessing any more than I did while on the medication, there's a lot of pent-up energy, the sex drive is back though that does account for some of the pent-up energy...basic idea, this whole thing seems like a positive so far since those pills didn't seem to do too much, but that perspective might be a bit skewed. Does anyone have any ideas on how to figure out if it is a positive or not? Note that I am done with the one psychiatrist entirely so that's not really an option.

Are you bipolar? Regardless, getting the med soup right is important. When are you seeing a new psychiatrist?
