If bipolar medication works why do people stop taking their medication when they're on a "high"? If the medication works doesn't it stop them from hitting those extremes?
It is possible that I don't understand how the medication works, which is why I'm asking. With recent studies showing that antidepressants don't work for a lot of people I'm really curious about this stuff.

It's not an 'extreme' for me. It's like 'well Im happy and I feel fine, I don't need this medication now'. The side effects can suck too. One of mine actually made me eat in my sleep. I have been off my meds for 2 years now and Im fine. I still have 'highs' and 'lows', but I found other ways to deal with it. I couldn't take the side effects. I was not myself. It was very strange.
