Thank you all for your support. It is much appreciated, especially now. So notice how the answer was "antidepressants" to be involved in my meds cocktail. I could not agree more. It seems that each time we take that part out of my combo, the depression episodes are back. I just think it's interesting because this proves my point. Mood stabilizers are not what heals the depressive symptoms, antidepressants are. And technically we as bipolar patients are not supposed to use antidepressants for treatment because it causes mania/hypomanica/and/or cycling.
It just seems so frustrating and yet interesting to me.
Anyway, I sould be seeing my pdoc Monday morning. And I think I'm looking into Lexapro (thanks for the suggestion Diskus) but I would like to know about wieght gain with this drug. Any knowledge would be great...
