After first being diagnosed with Addison's ( in the ER during a Adrenal crisis) I was put on a very high dose of cortisone/cortef. A couple weeks later, I was diagnosed with Manic Depression b/c I was acting "off the wall/manic". Now I am searching for the truth and find too high doses of steroids can cause symptoms exactly like the mania I experienced. Since then my meds were changed and I am now on Dexamethasone and on Depakote for the Manic/ Depression. I am looking to see if anyone else was diagnosed with M/D after being initially treated for acute Addison's and placed on high steroids.
