Hi Mandy & Toni, welcome to HealingWell. I too suffer with depression. I'm having some mood swings now too. My psychiatrist says that it is environmental (situational) and doesn't think it is bipolar. Also, she took me off of Lexapro cold turkey b/c I also take meds for migraine and it can cause too much serotonin and very risky. I'm really worried now b/c my body responded best to Lexapro. Have you been to a psychiatrist? Your symptoms sounds a bit like bi-polar. Maybe a mood stabilizer for bipolar might help. Talk to your doctor. In the meantime, I'm glad that you found HW. Take care.
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference. Amen."
