Struggling with DH mental health

I'm really struggling, DH suffers with depression/anxiety and has just had his medication changed by the doctor. He's not sleeping, he's jittery, on edge, last night he was virtually incoherent at times as if he's going into a psychosis - my mum had bi polar so I don't say that lightly, I've seen manic/psychotic episodes and it's scaring me.

He won't talk about what's actually wrong, I managed to get him to sleep last night so hopefully he'll be a bit better later but it's so hard.

He goes through these phases where he won't sleep for nights, doesn't eat and ends up in this mess and I can't cope anymore - I was getting frightened last night and it's pushing me to the point I'd rather be alone sad

I can't offer any advice I'm afraid but I do sympathise. My DH is in a bad place with depression /anxiety at the moment and I'm really struggling to keep my head above water myself

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will be along to offer some advice

Thank you, I don't really know what advice I expect but it's reassuring to know other people are in the same boat, it's so difficult living with someone who feels like a stranger sometimes sad

Luckily, he's had some sleep and seems brighter this evening, how's your DH today?
