I neglected to mention that I am taking the lithium in the new medicine combination. Up to 900 mg for past few days

Thanks for looking up this information for me. I usually research any medication thouroughly when I go on it, but with the depression being so bad I am just taking then. I am not manic-depressive so that is good with regard to the Cipralex. I did know when I took Lamitcal 3 years ago that it is an anti-convulsant.....but I had no idea that it is in the same class as clonazepam and Klonopin. Actually, I can't believe I missed that. Does that mean that it is addictive? Not that I am not addicted to my pain pills (opiates)

Thank you so much for the time you spent for me. Ironically, the only reason my mood has lifted and I am able to be here, is because I have had three awful falls, have a cast on my right arm, and have been given percocetts for the pain. I know it sounds strange, but after 25 years of more meds and combos I could ever remember, 2 rounds of shock treatment, 7 or 8 psychiatric hospitalizations, 4 treatment centres, every kind of talk therapy, 12 step programs, methadone, day treatment programs .............. it comes down to these damn pills.

Thank you for the link and thank you for helping me, Squiggles.
