Over the last few days I have been suffering from what I would say is intense euphoria. I can feel it starting then it gets to a point where I feel I can become dangerous or reckless. For example, when I am driving the colours around me begin to become really vibrant and bright…this then leads to a feeling of intense euphoria which makes me take dangerous risks on the road and drive reckless without a care in the world.

This has also happened when I am just pottering around the house, which has been quite good actually as I have cleaned my house that well it could be used as a hospital theatre. I find these moments only last about an hour, following from this euphoria I feel a sense of calm.

I wonder if this is a side effect of lithium or quetiapine? not sure but I will speak to my psychiatrist in a few days about it. Anyone else had similar feelings?
