During these periods he was impatient, aggressive, depersonalized, suffering from hyperphagia, and amnesia. He did not have abnormal neurologic sings and his brain ÇT, ËËG, and routine laboratory tests were normal. Fluoxetine, lithium and carbamazepine were given to him to reduce the signs of his disease.
