> Hi. I have been diagnosed with unipolar depression and bipolar depression *roll eyes*. I think it's because some meds have made me manic, but I have never had a hypomanic or manic episode on its own. I'm 37 and I have suffered since my teens, but I only sought treatment in my late 20's.

I did try to become part of a DBS (Deep Brain Stimulation) study though. It's invasive, but shows a lot of promise.

Hi Maxime,
Another thought - is RU-486 available in Canada? Here they are trying it out to use on depression and possibly bipolar too.
Thought I'd share with you my dx-I'm bipolar and get into a psychotic depression without meds. With meds I am pretty much ok. I take Wellbutrin 300mg
Abilify 30mg
Neurontin 1200mg
Seroquel 800mg
Ive been on this combo for about 2 months and it seems to be working well for me. I dont think I saw Abilify on your list of drugs-for me it works as an antidepressant and seems to give a little bit of a lift to my mood. I'm 38 so am your age....became sick around 23-25 years old or so.
