We painted our bedroom ceiling with the bathroom ceiling paint. Our bedroom started to get damp (water drops coming from the ceiling). How can we stop this? If we paint the ceiling with the proper paint will it be OK or should we remove this paint before the new paint? Thank you

Most likely this is caused by high room humility and water is condensing on the ceiling surface. If this isn't the cause then you have a roof leak. The best thing is too reduce the humidity. If this isn't possible you could paint your ceiling with a flat sheen paint. Water is less likely to condense into a single droplet with flat paint.
