Hi everyone,
 
This is a bit short notice, but I have a pdoc appointment tomorrow and I know we're probably going to change my meds a bit.  Just wondering what meds are helping with others for the depressive symptoms.  I've still been cycling a bit, but also still dealing with the depression episodes too.  Any response would be greatly appreciated.

Hi mogs....I am on same dosage of risperdal as you, in addition to 200mg. Zoloft. I hope you find a good match!

Thanks for your reponse...Pdoc won't add any antidepressant at all for me b/c of my cycling, so it sucks.  He wanted me to try Topamax again (which I did a couple of years ago) and I can't remember why I went off it, but I just had this gut feeling that I shouldn't take it, so after I dropped it off at the pharmacy I called them back and told them not to fill it.  Some of the side effects bother me, so I'll just keep charting my moods and wait until I see him again in 3 weeks.  
 
Anyway, thanks again.  Hope you are well, hugs :-)

Mogs,

I wish I can say what meds worked for my depression, but I can't. All my pdocs refuse to put me on antidepressants even with a mood stabilizer. I think you should talk to your pdoc about what options you have left outside of antidepressants. Best wishes and please let us know what happens.
