For a number of years, my psychiatrist encouraged me to consider an AD. (My BPll depression was entrenched and monolithic.)

I refused and hewed to the opinion that, given time, Lamictal would be enough. Well, that did not happen, and so I tried Lexapro, and together with the Lamictal, the lights went on for the first time in maybe 8+ years.

Further contraindicated by some experts, a little Adderall was added. I haven't, knock on wood while there is still some available, been hypo.
