Bipolar Disorder Type III


The key differentiating feature about Bipolar Disorder Type III is that it is an admission that psychiatric drugs cause irreversible Brain Damage!


Bipolar Disorder Type III is caused by exposure to psychiatric medications and is considered permanent!


This is a frank admission that many Bipolar Disorders are iatrogenically caused, iatrogenically created.  In other words, Bipolar Disorders are caused by the treating physician!


Bipolar Disorder Type III was proposed sometime during or before 2006 as a new category for the upcoming Diagnostic and Statistical Manual V (DSM V); however, the DSM V appears to have been delayed permanently.


Perhaps part of the delay might be the fear of exposure of the fact psychiatric medications work upon principles of toxicity and disabling. 


Rather than “fix” chemical imbalances, they “cause” chemical imbalances!


Long term usage results in permanent Brain Damage!

    I was searching Bipolar III and came across your blog. I understand what you are saying about how BP III evolves, but here is my situation: my daughter, who has suffered from depression for many years, has never been on any “antidepressents.” She was, however, diagnosed as ADHD at the age of 10 and was on Adderall, Adderall XL (?-time release), and Strattera. We switched to the Strattera because the Adderall did not seem to be helping her anymore. The Strattera was taken around the age of 15 and she developed suicidal thoughts and severe depression. We believed it was caused by the Strattera and promptly discontinued the medication. Since then, she has suffered terribly with depression, going through years of trying to treat with counseling. Fast forward, she is now 20 and is in recovery for drug use, I suspect from trying to self-medicate. She has now been officially diagnosed as BPIII because they said she has small, rapid cycles-ups and downs, but not wide extremes. This is the first I have heard that it is caused by antidepressents, but that seems to be all I can find now to describe what BPIII actually is. My question is, do you think that the Strattera actually caused the depression and the subsequent BPIII, or do you think she might actually fall into a different category for depression or Bipolar? I realized that it would take more that my simple story to make a diagnosis, I am just wondering if we should press for a more thorough diagnosis or accept that the BPIII diagnosis is accurate?

    Howdy Mary Kay Steele–

    The purpose of my site is to provide “generic” information. It could be misconstrued as unethical for me to comment on what you have so richly described. Moreover, I am retired and have no licenses.

    Nevertheless, it appears you are onto something. May I suggest a second opinion by one of the many fine professionals who are members of the ABCT, formerly known as the Association for the Advancement of Behavioral Technologies (AABT). Or one of the students associated with Dr. Steven Hayes in Reno who developed ACT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

    Let me know what you discover. Thank you.

    At your service,

    Dr. Kent

    PS Few practioners have heard of Bipolar Disorder Type III yet. It will be announced next year with the new DSM-V.

    Dear Dr Kent.
    I was on zoloft, 200 mg for 2.5 years. since 2009 january to now, 2011 may. just last week, after the doctor put me on Lamictal, now at 50mg/day, the zoloft is reduced to 100mg/day.

    only after i was on zoloft, i recognise my lack of need to sleep. some times i sleep only for 2 hours and can perform my daily task as usual. sometimes, despite of lack of sleep, i am full of energy and can work non-stop from 9 to 5 with no break nor lunch. doctor said these are hypomania. now i carry the label of bipolar 2 sufferer.

    my nephew who is 15 years younger than me, and now a psychologist insists that i am not bipolar, not type 2 anyway, as he knows me very close and once has lived with me and my children while doing his internship, prior to my depression in 2009. He is definite that i do not show any sign of mania/hypomania.

    i am torn in believing which one is right. while seeking second opinion, one other psychotherapist wonders if i might have bipolar type 3, which i never heard before. Tonight, i came across your blog, and wonder if you also think my case could be type 3.

    i thank you for your time and would really appreciate any input from you.

    Dear Jo–

    I give generic advice and nothing specific to any particular individual. The Bipolar concepts really bother me. I find little credibility or usefullness in them! I have been thinking of publishing a self-help book just for those who find themselves stuck in the system and finding their progress is not what they wanted. There are many who search out professionals for opinions and advice, yet there is not much help to be found!

    Many folks just want something to hang to their hat on; they want an excuse. They don’t want to change; they prefer to remain in the sick role. In fact, many are satisifed with assuming the sick role.

    I always advocate a person put themselves through an intense period of excercise and eating right. Seriously, boot camp. This change and attention to detail in diet and all that goes into getting in tip top shape usually resolve depressions.

    One thing for sure: Psychiatric medications cause chemical imbalances which often become permanent.

    As far as your situation, I have no opinion other than I’d get a new doctor. Once one starts down the slippery slope of psychiatric medications, the diagnostic labels only get worse.

    Bipolar Type III is an admission that psychiatric drugs cause damages and they are permanent. Or, so they would have you believe!

    I, however, believe one can overcome mental disorder(s) and make phenomenal changes. If I was you, I’d pass on any and all of these labels and hire a Personal Trainer, get into a strenuous physical regimen and see what you can accomplish. Maybe you can get off the drugs before you become too addicted!

    Hope this helps,

    Dr. Kent
