I never thought about that aspect until I read your post. I have always been manic with very very few depression issues. about a year ago my mania got way out of control and I have spent the last year trying to find a mood stabilizer that worked well with me. During this time I notice I was having more and more depressive episodes especially when I was getting off of one med and waiting to start another. I now am on a good mood stabilizer, Risperdal, that does not send swinging too far in either direction. It is very nice to feel calm and as stable as I can be but it took alot of work and trial and error to get here. I would call me PDoc and really what helped him most was the notes I jotted down when I was really feeling bad or going up and down, maybe you just need a med tune-up! I can not ever be on anti-depresssants, they send me soring out of control.
I hope your holiday was a good one.
