...not pressing for details either because I'm sure no doctor, but my guess is the risk you're gonna fry your brain from a round of SRIs/stabilizers or benzos is pretty low.

I've known a couple of folks very well who developed symptoms from debilitating hypomania to psychosis, but both got to that point as a result of coming *off* medication designed to treat lesser symptoms of Bipolar II, schizophrenia. In both cases, the descent into madness was gradual, and involved many bouts of recognition that they needed to get back on their meds before 'the other' in their noggin convinced them they were better.
