> Right. Lithium is unique though because it is the only med that is proven to prevent suicide to a significant degree. And you don't need much to achieve that outcome. Or is there another med like that, that I am not aware of?

There is nothing quite like lithium.

But if you ask me, personally, I used to find stimulants dramatically effective. From lying in bed, apathetic, thinking about ways to kill myself, within 5-15 minutes of a dose of a stimulant, I was feeling that life was interesting and getting involved in doing stuff -- at least *thinking* interesting, constructive (and indeed non-suicidal) thoughts, but often reading and writing, even getting active on forums like this.

It's been years since I used stimulants, but haven't been suicidal for years, either. Currently I'm benefitting from trimipramine.
