I myself have wondered about this. I have occasional but ongoing yeast on my tongue and my doc just rights it off as "someone who produces to much." I do know when it gets bad and I take an antibiotic along with an antifungal, my mood lifts. This happens every time (last time about 3 months ago) and I feel like it's a waste of time to discuss with my doc simply because I don't think he knows enough about yeast/bacteria that can lead to bipolar depression/unipolar depression.

If you find any leads on this topic, let me know and I will do the same.
