Has anyone with BP been put on an anti-depressant without becoming manic? I have tried tricyclics, SSRI's SSNI's and MAOI's. All of them give me gut wrenching debilitating anxiety (my eqivalent of mania) I'm currently on Adderall which helps with my lack of energy but it's only a stimulant and doesn't have any anti-depressant effects. I did have ECT in 2002 and 2004 which really helped for a while but I'm still clinically depressed. I'm leaving for England tomorrow so might not get to check my messages for a couple of weeks depending on computer availability over there, I'm from a small village. I really value the opinions and advice of this board and its members.
