From this study (1 year ago):
I got sick w/ bronchitis April 1. Doctors advised to take Musinex DM every 4 hours and Nyquil at night. I did this for 2 weeks with little imrpovement. I went back to doctor and was given zithromax (z-pack) and the next week I was given amoxicillian. My symptoms did not improve; I could not sleep and grew very agitated and manic (rapid thoughts, nervousness, high blood pressure)
I was eventually hospitalized on psychiatric unit due to manic behvior. I was given haldol and ativan; symtoms subsided. My moods are stable now, with NO medications.
