The other thing is to have a little patience, Trice, which I imagine is hard right now. Antidepressants don't work that fast. It takes weeks for their full anti-depressant effects to kick in. They certainly can trigger mania in bipolar disordered patients, but if you don't feel any change in a few days, call the doc again. Make sure he understands your concerns about being bipolar. Did he screen you for it?

It is a melancholy of mine own, compounded of many simples, extracted from many objects, and indeed the sundry contemplation of my travels, in which my often rumination wraps me in a most humorous sadness. -- William Shakespeare
