Tried everything but still not feeling better?

If your depression keeps coming back or is even getting worse, then you may be suffering from bipolar II or “soft” bipolar disorder. Commonly misdiagnosed, these mood disorders are characterized by recurring bouts of depression along with anxiety, irritability, mood swings, sleep problems, or intrusive thoughts.

Why Am I Still Depressed? shows you how to identify if you have a nonmanic form of bipolar disorder and how to work with your doctor to safely and effectively treat it.

Author James R. Phelps, M.D., gives you the latest tools and knowledge so you can:

  • Understand the Mood Spectrum, a powerful new tool for diagnosis
  • Know all your treatment options, including mood-stabilizing medications and research-tested psychotherapies
  • Examine the potential hazards of taking antidepressant medications
  • Manage your condition with exercise and lifestyle changes
  • Help family and friends with this condition understand their diagnosis and find treatment

Synopsis:

A reader in San Diego, June 20, 2006 (view all comments by A reader in San Diego)
Going beyond the DSM-IV, "Why Am I Still Depressed?" thoroughly describes the mood spectrum in its various types, and finding and using the right treatment, including medications, exercise and lifestlye changes. Better than "Soft Bipolar" by Charles Bunch PhD, this book is written by Jim Phelps MD, a psychiatrist who specializes in treating bipolar disorder. More information can be found at PsychEducation.org. Highly recommended for understanding depression and bipolar disorder. Useful for family and friends, as well as those with mood disorders. This reviewer has no commercial interest in the book or any relationship with the author whatsoever.
