In meantime she has cut her wrist wice and presently getting treatment of OCD and bipolar disorder from six months.Earlier before starting treatment of bipolar disorder she had manic symptoms and irritation( used to tear cloths destroying mobile and other valuables) for about six to eight weeks and now she is depressed and exhibiting irritation now and then from six months.

Reply: Dear Sir,
Your daughter is presently having the manic and depressive symptoms of bipolar disorder. There are several factors that can be responsible for it, like genetics, stress, substance abuse, traumatic brain injury, brain tumor, parkinsons disease, etc and requires evaluation by a psychiatrist as well as a neurologist. Any underlying ailment can be diagnosed on basis of any symptoms or signs that she may be having and requires a physical checkup. Regarding your concern of little benefit with treatment, you may get her check up done but also remember that these are chronic disorders and take lot of time and patience to come under control. Ensure that she is taking her medication as advised and not missing out on any of the doses. Since she has suicidal tendency, you have to be very alert and never leave her alone. It can be very taxing for the caregivers but requires lot of love,patience, care and support from the family for the patient to get full benefit. You may also consult her treating doctor again for any changes in her drug type/dosages.
