    Sorry I can't help.....The only thing remotely close to this that I learned in school was called, agraphia. Loss of the ability to write due to damage to the brain. OR, agrypnia, which is insomnia....I think.

    Let us know if you ever find out what this means. Very interesting!

    Because ...often SSRI antidepressants will cause a bipolar person to have a manic episode.
    Maybe the MD was trying to create a neologism for "talking too much"????
    Cuz AGROPHASIA is NOT coming up as a real word in cyberspace....
    ....large speech????......
