I am a first semester nursing student and just trying to tread water, but I have to come up with nursing dx for a bipolar man with mania, and he is so overmedicated, he can hardly walk, talk, or do anything. When he is off his meds he is manic, and totally happy and wants to fix everything. This pt was found on the interstate, saying to himself he shouldn't have listened to the barking dog.
I just want to know if these are at least on the right track ...any insight would be helpful. I take criticism well and learn from it. :)
